The Bunny Tale

I thought it was a kitty cat,
But saw it was a rabbit;
He was hopping down the trail,
And then he stopped to sit.

He looked back at me
And wiggled his nose;
Seems he wanted me to follow,
So, I quickly arose.

I started down that trail,
Amongst the forest's trees,
Then that rabbit scurried off,
As quickly as you'd please.

He stopped at the next bend,
He once more looked at me,
And as I moved nearer,
He turned once more to flee.

I moved deeper in the forest,
It was dark and kinda silent;
I looked around the trail's curve,
To see where that rabbit went.

He sat in an open clearing
Of clover covered ground,
Amidst a group of creatures,
That had gathered around.

They all watched me warily,
But they didn't turn to run;
The rabbit said, "Come join us ...
Come join in our fun."

I asked, "How do you speak?
Am I losing my mind?
If I close my eyes and look again,
I wonder what I'll find."

He said, "You're in our world now,
And if you'll truly believe,
You will be amazed at things
Your heart and mind perceive."

You will see life as it should be,
If you'll take the time to look,
You'll find all those stories true,
As told in the fairytale book."

"You'll see we live in peace,
And nearly perfect harmony.
You'll learn what it really means
To be happy, safe and free."

I sat down with legs crossed
And said, "Please tell me more,
This sounds like the very place
That I have been searching for."

"I'm tired of all the hassle
Of this world in which I live,
Where they all think ... I want to take,
When I only want to give."

"It's a plastic/cardboard place
Where nothing's really real,
Where so many things are only said,
Without the will to feel."

"So, if I like it here with you,
Will I be able to stay?
Or will you force me to return
To where they play those games they play?"

He said, "Humans are so foolish!
They are filled with hate and greed;
They rip the life from the earth
After they've planted it's seed."

"You say you want to stay with us,
But that can not be allowed,
For if we welcome one of you
Before long, there'll be a crowd."

"We will let you stay for awhile,
Try to teach you what we know,
That this World can live in peace,
And then, you'll have to go."

But then I awakened
And realized I'd dreamed,
But I can't get over how real
That Easter Bunny seemed.
