Sometimes a March Hare

Traipsing through the meadows fields and glens
Harvey-like, this happiest of hares
Enjoys the fame he owns, It’s linked with hens.
Easter’s oval gems, his brightest wares,
Astonish children with their vivid hues.
Specimens by jeweler Fabergé,
Those tiny triumphs of elitist views,
Enchant adults, but no real warmth convey.
Richer is the creature with long ears,
Belov’d by little children far and wide.
Unseen, some say unreal, his presence cheers
Nonetheless. His charm can’t be denied.
Nourishing the need for joy and wonder
Yields confidence unshaken e’en by thunder.

~ FreeThinke - The Sandpiper - Spring 1996

  2. Thanks, FJ. And your tremendous store of erudition and recondite lore never ceases to amaze me, so I guess that makes us even. ;-)


    New sonnets each day
    Keep Depression at bay.

    Avoid the frenetic,
    Instead wax poetic.

    To escape "going native"
    One must be creative.

    Don't commit crime,
    Instead write a rhyme.

    Enjoy the erotic;
    It beats the neurotic.


    Carry on ...

  3. FT,
    A perfect poem for this time of year! And I see the acrostic, too.

    Happy Easter, FT!

    BTW, Harvey is Mr. AOW's favorite move. He loves whimsy -- and Jimmy Stewart.

  4. and, today, there are public schools banning the word EASTER..did you hear it's the SPRING BUNNY now?
    Maybe you've got a poem for THAT nonsense!! :)

    Happy Easter, FT! xxx

  5. I love Harvey too, AOW! It's always very amusing, but it runs much deeper than that. There's something very very kind in the character of Elwood P. Dowd. He's really a wonderful tole model.

    Jimmy Stewart was THE best.
