A lovely poem. Thumbs up.

Thanks so much, Bert. These will all be a bit mad, but they might not all rhyme.

Not all poems rhyme. So what's the fuss?
At least I haven't corrupted your style, though I never really dived into your lair... excuse me rabbit hole. Now I'm late for something... and I forgot my bloody watch!

I've been to Wonderland many times. Being late there doesn't much matter in the end. Thanks for reading.

Nice one, Hully. You're well at home with rabbits!

This is another time when I wish I could use the illustrations. The only way of seeing them without buying a pack is to go onto YouTube and find a flip through. Her drawings are so original and she names every character too. The one that inspired this was called 'Sir Norval Munchington'.

What a fun poem, I could just imagine this extraordinary rabbit jumping up high with the birds. It was a great bit of fun!

These are all just for fun, inspired by the images in the Pixiekins card deck.

I love this poem, I think it's got a wonderful rhythm, kinda fits with the image of the rabbit because the rhythm feels "hopping" to me, like a rabbit :)
