Funny Poem a Day – Rabbit, by Liz Brownlee

A poem and drawing (bit rough!) by me today – I wrote this for one of the classes in the school for which I am a Reading Patron.




This rabbit has ears

very long, times two,

and eyes, very large

with an all-round view,

a snitch with a twitch and a chew.


He moves with a hop

and a lope and a leap.

and a thump of his

very large lollopy feet,

to seek treats for his big teeth to eat.


And if you should give

him a startle or scare,

where he was he won’t be

for he’s no longer there,

in a dash and a flash of white tail in the air.

What’s the difference between a  bunny who runs marathons and a bunny who is a clown?
