Rabbit Talk

    “Rabbit Talk,” Friend, Jan. 1987, 22

    Rabbit Talk

    I wonder if the rabbits talk

    Beneath the winter moon.

    I wonder if they dance and sing

    To secret rabbit tunes.

    I wonder if their hidden holes

    Are filled with rabbit toys.

    I wonder who tells stories

    To rabbit girls and boys.

    I think that I hear laughter

    As the chilly north wind blows—

    And how I wish that I could be

    A rabbit when it snows!
