Easter eggs and jelly -beans – – – orange, yellow, pink, blue and green,
just to name a few…
polka dots, stripes, and solids, too.
Mysteriously scattered around yards, porches and trees, adorning houses, and fences ever so free.
Sparkling little faces, glowing, and beaming, in anticipation of this joyful event.
Tiny little feet threading ever so lightly on green colored grass.
Tiptoeing ever so carefully not to step on any of their soon-to-be edible treasures.
Eagerly enjoying this long waited yearly hunt to recover pastel jewels, left so cleverly and generously behind by their long-eared, hip-pity, hop-pity friend.
Little sly fellow, sometimes rather mellow,
guiding and protecting his precious pot of gold, oh…
Vivacious, wicked, sneering with tiny pointed ears,
Listening carefully for unknown footsteps to soundly slip himself away.
Dancing in a circle
And flocking little fiddles,
Night time approaches – – – festive time has begun.
Coat tails flying, faces glowing, little feet kicking up a storm with abounding jugs of
merriment and untold endless energy.
Planning, playing little practical jokes, while tapping tiny manners behind a tall oak.
Red, orange, yellow, blue
These are the colors I love so true
Pink, green, orange, white
They stand bright and are out of sight
Colors, colors, everywhere
On my hair and eyes so rare
Green so keen, it makes me scream
Pink, soft as mink, makes me blush in a wink
Yellow mellow, so sublime
It shines in the sky anytime
God’s rainbow, shining through,
Promises held, ever so true.
