Listen and read-along with this sweet poem by, MaryLou Manzik.
I have a secret, I’ve kept it with care
Now you be the keeper of this secret I share
My garden is home to a rare reading rabbit
Reading alone is his nature and habit
A rabbit imagined from resin and paint
Quietly reading without a complaint
With a book on his lap, pages firm, not a tear
And his ears bent back as he sits in a chair
The chair growing moss, in the shade of a fern
He reads the day long, though a page doesn’t turn
But as night spreads its magic, a dim quiet way
A page softly turns for the coming new day
