Where Bunnies Play

Is there something that you love to collect
that makes your little heart sing?
Mine would be bunnies, they're my favorite things.
I love their little fluffy toes
and the way they wiggle their velvet nose.
I love when they lay on their backs in a trance...
I love the way they jig and dance.
Bunnies sing to my heart!

Alas, for bunnies lives are too short
like seasons that pass
and then are no more.

So I have resigned myself to bunnies of another kind.
Those that rest on shelves and dwell beneath jars
and some that peacefully sleep beneath stars.
Bunnies sing to my heart.

There are little chickies that neither squabble or squawk
and their only desire is to listen while you talk.

Jars filled with fruit to nibble and munch,
when the humans are asleep they all meet for lunch.

They gather together and scatter abroad
dancing around objects, some of them odd.
Steam heaters for warming cold toes in the night
wooden airplane propellers that lift them in flight.

Some are the playful sort and some just have chores,
but somehow it's me who still mops the floors.

Bunnies that watch over chocolate eggs
and chase little puppies while their masters away.

Bunnies sing to my heart!

What sings to yours?

I love bunnies too... To me birds make me sing... I will have to do a post on all the birds I have in my home... Hubby says, does this room have to have birds in it too... I am like "yes sweetie" But really before mentioned it I never noticed how many I really had...

I have bunnies greeting people as they come to my front door...

Love Ya' Cori...

This is such a sweet poem that you wrote Cori! You have a very nice collection of thinsg that make your heart sing :-) I love your bunnies and chicks.

My list things that make my heart sing is eclectic, but I think books are # 1!

Our first pet was a black bunny named Tilly Blue. She was the sweetest pet. We even took her for walks on a rabbit leash in the park.

Roses make my heart sing.
