Twirly whirly, topsy turvy,

bumpsadaisy, here we go…es –

 

like rabbit goes –

nose over toes;

rolling down the grassy hill;

rolling down until he’s –

still.

 

And lies on his back –

Just like that.

 

He looks up at the sky.

“Me oh my!”

Bright and blue; and so, so high.

“It’s a beautiful day – a perfect day for a really good play.”

“I help,” came a soft, little voice.

Rabbit sat up with a start and looked round.

“Who,” he demanded, “said that?”

 

“Me,” said hill.

Rabbit’s nose wrinkled, “Hmm.”

“You couldn’t roll down twirly whirly if I wasn’t here.”

” Oh,” nodded rabbit. “True. Thank you, hill. Thank you.”

Hill grew higher and steeper still.

Then rabbit and hill smiled and sighed –

“Perfect – just perfect.”

He looks up at the sky.

“Me oh my!”

And watches the birds as they flutter and fly.

“It’s a beautiful day – a perfect day for a really good play.”

 

“I help,” came a soft little voice.

Rabbit sat up with a start and looked round.

“Who,” he demanded, “said that?”

 

“Not me!” said hill.

“Me,” said grass.

Rabbit’s nose wrinkled, “Hmm.”

“I’m soft and bouncy so you don’t bash and crash.”

” Oh,” nodded rabbit. “True. Thank you, grass. Thank you.”

Grass gently rippled in the soft, soothing breeze.

Then rabbit, hill and grass smiled and sighed –

“Perfect – just perfect.”

“Me,” said tree.

Rabbit’s nose wrinkled, “Hmm.”

“The shade I have made stops you burning your nose.”

” Oh,” nodded rabbit. “True. Thank you, tree. Thank you.”

Tree stretched his great branches and shook his leaves.

Then rabbit, hill, grass and tree smiled and sighed –

“Perfect – just perfect.”

Sun spread out her golden rays and warmed rabbit’s tummy.

Then rabbit, hill, grass, tree and sun smiled and sighed –

“Perfect – just perfect.”

“My rain makes the grass soft and sweet for you to eat.”

” Oh,” nodded rabbit. “True. Thank you, cloud. Thank you.”

A big, sparkling drop plip plopped onto rabbit’s nose.

“Eergh!” he squealed. “I’m not so sure about you, rainy cloud!”

 

But hill, grass, tree, sun, and cloud – wriggled and giggled;

Then smiled and sighed –

“Perfect – just perfect.”

Then nibbles the grass – scrumptious wet, and scrumptious dry!

“It’s a beautiful day – a perfect day for a really good play.”

Rabbit’s nose wrinkled, “Hmm.”

“I’m hungry; you’re tasty. I’m going to gobble you up.”

” Oh,” nodded rabbit. “True. But only if I let you!”

 

Rabbit jumped up and darted away;

And fox gave chase – without delay.

 

And they ran up – steep hill.

And they ran through – sweet grass.

And they ran round  – shady tree.

And they ran under  – golden sun.

And they ran beneath  – rainy cloud.

And they ran, and they ran ’til they – stopped.

And sat.

Rabbit puffed.

Fox  wheezed.

“It’s not,” panted rabbit, “so perfect after all!”
