A new load of firewood waits for someone to move it into the shed. Doesn’t seem like a big job unless you consider that each piece of firewood must be picked up and set down again. If there are 300 pieces of firewood that means I have to bend down to pick up or put down wood 600 times. My back hurts already!
If I thought this prospect was daunting, how do you think young Benny Bunny felt when his hiding place was discovered after only a short time and he came bouncing out from under the firewood? Now he will have to find another place to hide.
“Don’t fret, Benny,” said Bonnie Bunny. “As long as we have each other, we can snuggle up together tonight. But for now, let’s get out of here. Quick like a bunny!”
You can see how tiny Bonnie is compared to the piece of firewood she’s sitting beside.
“Bonnie, see these sunflower seeds?
These are all a bunny needs.
I know we prefer the lettuce,
And the carrots I will get us.
“Even though the garden’s poor,
What I’ve noticed on my tour,
Is that still the weeds can grow,
Found some good ones that I know.
“All these seeds are empty shells,
They’re the ones the squirrel repels,
Leave those sunflower seeds alone,
Better eat the greens I’ve known.
“No more hiding in the wood,
There’s a place I know we could,
Enter in the veggie patch,
All new sprouts go down the hatch.”
Hipping, hopping, off they go,
To the place that Ben will show,
Ducking through the garden fence,
Once inside they’re not so tense.
“One important thing,” says Ben,
“Don’t eat more than eight or ten,
If we put on too much weight,
Can’t squeeze through the garden gate.”
Though they barely made it through,
They were thrilled to chew and chew.
Bonnie says, “I’ll just eat seven,
And I’ll come back to this heaven.”
