a tail of well-read bunnies

December 7, 2007


A well-read bunny,
is sitting on his tail.
He’d rather read a book,
than open up his mail.

It’s really quite astounding,
will wonders never cease,
although he is a bunny,
he’s reading “War and Peace.”

This is dedicated to the scholarly rabbit in all of us.

  1. That’s adorable – although the book might be heavier than he is.

    Love your stuff, and was wondering if you would mind me featuring this poem on my blog, “Newton Poetry.” Basically, what I do is enter poems I like into my Apple Newton, the Newton translates the poem, and what comes out is “Newton Poetry.” You can check out the blog if you have any questions.

    Great stuff!

    That sounds like fun and I’m very flattered. Go right ahead. I can’t wait to see what the Newton comes up with.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Very cute indeed. Love those feet!

  6. Great tail this fellow has, is that what a “tuffet” is? If not, it should be. Good job he eats lots of carrots, that wee book must be tough on his eyes…

    Love it, as always.

  8. Oh man I love your drawings! I put this one at the head of my list “I am reading…” on my blog, and linked back here!

  9. Oh I should tell you where I put it on my blog: it is on the “Reading Challenges” page.
