Poetry Friday--Bunnies!

It's spring, and it's also nearly Easter, so I've been seeing bunnies all around. There are even wild ones coming out of hiding. Poor things will have to wait another week or so before things really start to green up!

In honor of bunnies, I've selected bunny/rabbit poems from two of the many animal poem books in our children's room:

The first is from Animal Trunk: Silly Poems to Read Aloud by Charles Ghigna [J 811 GHI]:

Bunnies nibble.
Bunnies doze.
Bunnies twitch
A bunny nose.

Bunnies huddle.
Bunnies hide.
Bunnies like to
Dig outside.

Bunnies run.
Bunnies stop.
Bunnies do
The bunny hop.

This next one is from the anthology, National Geographic Book of Animal Poetry: 200 Poems With Photographs That Squeak, Soar, and Roar! edited by J Patrick Lewis [808.81 NAT]:

I had to scan it so that you can see the way it is laid out on the page. Like "Bunnies" above, it's a fun poem to read aloud!

Hop on over to The Poem Farm for the Poetry Friday Round-Up. Enjoy the Easter holiday if you celebrate it, but take it easy on the jelly beans!


  1. Great rabbit poems! They are perfect for reading out loud. The second one is quite a tongue twister :-) !

    1. Try reading the second one faster and faster!

  2. Such fun! These are both glorious to read aloud. Bunnies abound...welcome spring! Happy PF! xo, a.

    1. It's nice to have some poems that are pure fun.

  3. Funny, but we don't have many bunnies where we are...owls and hawks must thin out the population too much. But I loved these bunny poems. Fun!

  4. I love the sound of both of these poems, and I love bunnies too - though here in Australia they can be problematic in the wild,as they are not native. I especially love the tongue-twisting word play of the second poem.
