Rabbit Rite






Easter's a surprise;
an explosion of life
That ripe roaring lustre
of fashion and rife

The whole tug tomato
of lavender light
And mole fevered digging
of Hanibal right

For children now zigging
and candy gnawed wiggling
That baskets of wicker
are rabbit bowed giving

And all for a circus
that children delight
When Easter is Peter
and candy his rite
