1. "Happy Easter!"
Ah, 'tis the season...
When the Easter Bunny hops into view!
He brings pretty eggs and creme filled, too,
Marshmallow chicks and jelly beans,
Partially hidden in grasses of greens.
The ladies wear their best Easter bonnet.
The children are singing an Easter sonnet.
Easter services by many faiths, attended.
Passover reminds how slavery ended.
The presence of spring as a time of rebirth...
A time of new life comes to earth.
Everyone celebrates this time of year
In their own way that brings them cheer.
Respectfully share your thoughts, traditions and views.
Being careful of feelings, so as not to bruise.
In this time of renewal, rebirth,
Let us all bring forth each other's worth,
For we all have value in our own special way.
Let's compliment each other and let's start today!

Naturally from rabbits,
They come in spring,
Though synthesising a special egg,
Is no easy thing.
It can be made,
In a secure lab,
With white coats and moats,
And researchers drab.
A sprinkle of tellurium,
Then churn in a drum.
Catalysed by heat,
Chickens and foil,
Take out the mix,
Bury with soil.
Around spring you can collect the eggs,
(You’ve done it wrong if it has legs).

3. chocolate easter
A girl comes running to her mum
“Mummy, mummy, mummy, I can’t find the easter bunny!”
Mum took her girl outside, to let her see the world wide.
“It’s not easter yet, you need to wait for him until sunset”
The girl ran away, running across the green, wet hills
She came to a stop, near a big hollow tree
She sat in the tree, convincing herself that is was okay to flea.
Se sat for hours and hours and hours, until there was water on the flowers
And then she saw, a white and brown paw
“easter bunny, you’re here! you make the world look sunny”
The easter bunny led her to a secret place, from which no one could find a trace
In the center of the space, the girl saw a box.
The entire box was filled with tons and tons of chocolate
“thank you easter bunny” the girl said.
“now my easter will be great”
The easter bunny smiled and said:
“now you have enough chocolate untill you feel fed”
“and remember, easter is about the quantity of chocolate!”
And they lived happily ever after, with all the chocolate the girl can eat
