The Rabbit

The rabbit in the garden
likes to munch, munch munch.
On tender grasses and plants
that crunch, crunch, crunch.

     I had fun yesterday practicing sketching and drew this little rabbit.  He is far from perfect, but I did think he ended up looking like a rabbit.  I hope you had fun yesterday drawing a picture to go with your poem.
     Today is supposed to be very cold again.  for a short month, even though we get an extra day with leap year, February seems to go on forever for me.  I will be happy to see March.  And now you know how Lewis Carroll wrote about the March Hare and a mad tea party.  If you were to have a tea party today, who would be there?  Can you write a mad (wild) poem about it?  Do have a good time.  Cheerio.


  1. Joy,
    I found a garden book yesterday where children set up for a tea party with blossoms and seashells adorning the table. One child suggested, "Let's go out and plant peanut butter and jelly sandwiches." Isn't that adorable?

  2. Linda,
    A children's tea party sounds delightful. Lewis Carroll had a delicious one, and yes, yes, yes, I love the idea of planting peanut butter sandwiches.
    I wrote a picture book with a pizza tree in it. Papa Pagano threw the pizza in his back yard because it wasn't any where as good as the pizza his dear dead wife made--then the dog fertilized the pizza and it grew into a tree. The tree helped Papa get over his loneliness.
    Thanks for the inspiration of thinking about things that could be planted.
