'Me and My Baby'

 ‘Dear BunnieRabbit, why so unkind? You cannot stay mad with me, lest my heart break.’

‘Oh BlackBird, but surely I am entitled to stay mad for a little while longer, and torment you just a tad.

For you yourself have been wandering for such a long time now, leaving me all alone here…..’

‘Prey forgive me darling Bunnie, let’s make up and kisssss, for see,’ BlackBird replies

‘Do I not come bearing gifts: a shiny shell from Greece, fleece from Hadrian’s wall, a woodcock’s feather from the Isle of Lewes.’ The Bird heaved a sigh and carried on,

‘Tulips from Amsterdam, and a small Birdie for you to hold and keep you company whenever I must fly o’er North & South on my travels.’

Rabbit swoons and sways……but remains silent.

‘Dearest Rabbit, what say you, ‘tis full moon, let us kiss and make love under the stars till the sun rises once more….’

At last Bunnie opens the door inviting BlackBird in, declaring: ‘Oh I don’t know it has to be áll night BlackBird, but okay then, enter and I’ll make us a hot cocoa for starters.’
