A touching sight, well worth a tear
The rabbit and Hal Cazimir,
Acting like pals of many a year.

His face expressed delighted fear
Plus pride in getting quite so near
Enough indeed to touch an ear
And Grandpa’s heart my grandson dear.

(Rabbits at “Shoots” were rather dear
So Hal came home with something near.
Well, squirrels have a fluffy rear!)
I shelled out four pounds ninety nine
And Hal said “mine”.
