THE EASTER EGG TREE

Away in a corner
where nobody goes,
there is a secret
that nobody knows.
Each year at Easter
Mum, Dad and me,
we go to visit
the Easter egg tree.

Has that Easter bunny
used his hiding-place?
We search in the branches,
and all round the base.
He’s hopped through the paddocks
to our special tree
to leave lots of eggs there
for Mum, Dad and me.

Eggs red and yellow,
eggs blue and green;
that’s how we know
Easter bunny has been.
Yes, each year at Easter
Mum, Dad and me,
find Easter eggs in
the Easter egg tree.

This is a true story! I wrote the poem for my daughter. When she was
small we used to stay in the country each Easter.
Mysteriously, when we visited a large gumtree away across the paddocks,
we always found Easter eggs. Once she even said she saw the bunny in the
distance.
