1. Easter’s Bunny

“With a hip and a hop—
Easter bunny won’t you stop,
At my house to hide some yummy little eggs.
Then you’ll jump out and run –
Down the street for some fun,
Zippity quick on your fuzzy, furry legs.
To hide treats for the others –
Boys and girls –even mothers,
Treats galore packed in baskets and bright bags!”

— Leanne Guenther

2. Egg Hunt

“She walked among the daffodils,
Eyes piercing.
Somewhere there was a treasure
Hidden within the yellow sea;
And there it was,
A silvery slip of oval goodness
Encasing a sweet wonder
Her fingertips could barely free
From its grasp.
Treasure found, she added it to
The basket filled with other such wonders,
A secret smile spreading across her face.”

—Julie Craig

3. Jelly Bean Poem

“Red is for the blood He gave.
Green is for the grass He made.
Yellow is for the sunflowers so bright.
Black is for the dark of night.
White is for the grace He gave.
Orange is for the sun He made.
Purple is for the hours of sorrow.
Pink is for our new tomorrow.
A bag full of jelly beans,
colorful and sweet.
It’s a prayer, a promise,
and a child’s treat.”

–Anonymous

4. An Easter Poem

“Today is Easter,
A very special day,
It’s the time to go to church,
And take some time and pray.

The kids will hunt for easter eggs,
And have alot of fun,
And on this beautiful spring day,
We’ll all be out in the sun.

But we must remember our Savior,
Who is up in the heavens above,
Because we are blessed with so many things,
And they are all given with his love.”

—Debbie

5. Easter Eggs

“Yellow and blue.
Easter eggs,
For me and you
Easter eggs,
Candy sweet.
Easter eggs
Are good to eat.
Easter eggs,
Pretty and funny.
But…where oh where
Is the Easter bunny?”

–Anonymous

6. The Easter Basket

“There was a knock at the door
I went to answer
finding no one there
but on the step was a beautiful basket
ribbons with all the colors of the rainbow

I took it inside and set in on the table
it was filled with jelly beans and chocolate eggs
and candy bunnies wrapped in pretty colored wrappers

There was green and pink plastic grass that engulfed
the contents, at the very bottom there was a note

I come to you this special day
not really from the Easter Bunny
but rather from a secret admirer
who happened to noticed that you needed something
to make you smile

I tried to think of who this could have come from
but for the life of me could not figure it out,
but as I gobbled up the goodies inside
I found myself traveling back to days so long ago
when I was a little girl and how excited that knock upon the door or door bell ringing would be, opening
up to find that special Easter Basket, just for me.

So I thank you, Easter Bunny who did not give his name,
for you brought this heart of mine not only a smile
but a memory of such sweeter days.

Such a simple little Easter Basket, yet so powerful
your effect on me…before you arrived at my door,
I did not think anyone would be so kind to remember
me in this magical way anymore.

—Lorrie Salvetti

7. On Easter Day

“On Easter Day the lilies bloom,
Triumphant, risen from their tomb;
Their bulbs have undergone rebirth,
Born from the silence of the earth
Symbolically, to tell all men
That Christ, the Saviour, lives again.
The angels, pure and white as they,
Have come and rolled the stone away
And with the lifting of the stone,
The shadow of the cross is gone!”

—June Masters Bacher

8. Easter Love

On Easter we celebrate love,
love coming from heaven,
love blanketing the earth in a transforming embrace;
unique and infinite love,
giving more than we can imagine for us, to cleanse our sin,
a perfect sacrifice, lamb of god,
the walking, talking word.
He is teacher, role model, friend,
this God in human form, dying,
then rising from the dead,
proving all who believe
will also rise
to have eternal life, with Him,
Lord of all.
Oh, Happy, Happy Easter!

—Joanna Fuchs

9. Hop and Stop

The first little rabbit went hop, hop, hop.
I said to the first rabbit, “Stop, stop, stop!”
The second little rabbit went run, run, run.
I said to the second rabbit, “Fun, fun, fun!”
The third little rabbit went thump, thump, thump.
I said to the third rabbit, “Jump, jump, jump!”
The fourth little rabbit went sniff, sniff, snuff.
I said to the fourth rabbit, “That is enough!”
The fifth little rabbit went creep, creep, creep.
I said to the fifth rabbit, “It’s time to sleep!”

—Anonymous

10. Easter Lillies

“Easter lilies! Can you hear
What they whisper, low and clear?
In dewy fragrance they unfold
Their splendor sweet, their snow and gold.
Every beauty-breathing bell
News of heaven has to tell.
Listen to their mystic voice.
Hear, oh mortal, and rejoice!
Hark, their soft and heavenly chime!
Christ is risen for all time!”

—Celia Laighton Thaxter

11. Easter Bunny

In memory of all the bunnies we couldn’t save.
“I remember Easter Sunday
It was colorful and fun
The new life that I’d begun
In my new cage.

I was just a little thing
When they brought me from the store
And they put me on the floor
In my cage.

They would take me out to play
Love and pet me all the time
Then at day’s end I would climb
In my cage.

But as days and weeks went by
I saw less of them it seemed
Of their loving touch I dreamed
In my cage.

In the night outside their house
I felt sad and so neglected
Often scared and unprotected
In my cage.

In the dry or rainy weather
Sometimes hotter sometimes colder
I just sat there growing older
In my cage.

The cat and dog raced by me
Playing with each other only
While I sat there feeling lonely
In my cage.

Upon the fresh green grass
Children skipped and laughed all day
I could only watch them play
From my cage.

They used to take me out
And let me scamper in the sun
I no longer get to run
In my cage.

Once a cute and cuddly bunny
Like a little ball of cotton
Now I’m grown up and forgotten
In my cage.

I don’t know what went wrong
At the home I did inhabit
I just grew to be a rabbit
In my cage.

But they’ve brought me to the pound
I was once loved and enjoyed
Now I wait to be destroyed
In my cage.”

—Mary Brandolino

12. His Love

“God sent His Son to take the punishment
For all the thoughtless, sinful things we do;
Jesus gave his life because He loves us;
His love is boundless, sweet, forever true.

On Easter morn He showed He is our Savior;
His resurrection proves He is our Lord.
That is why we tell you, “Happy Easter!”
He secured our heavenly reward!”

—Joanna Fuchs

13. Chocolate Easter Bunny

Chocolate Easter bunny
In a jelly bean nest,
I’m saving you for very last
Because I love you best.

I’ll only take a nibble
From the tip of your ear
And one bite from the other side
So that you won’t look weird.

Yum, you’re so delicious!
I didn’t mean to eat
Your chocolate tail till Tuesday.
Ooops! There go your feet!

I wonder how your back tastes
With all that chocolate hair.
I never thought your tummy
Was only filled with air!

Chocolate Easter bunny
In a jelly bean nest,
I’m saving you for very last
Because I love you best.

—Bobbie Katz

14. Easter Bunny

“Easter bunny soft and white
Hopping quickly out of sight,
Thank you for the eggs you bring
At Easter time to welcome spring.
Yellow eggs and blue and red
In the grass and flower bed
We will hunt them everywhere
Is it really you who put them there?”

—Anonymous

15. Sweet Truth Of Easter

“These candies tell a story
the best news you’ll ever hear.
It’s about Jesus dying on the cross
so that we could be brought near.

So hold them and turn them and you will see…
the “M” become a “W”an “E” and then a “3”

The “E” stands for… Easter….
God’s everlasting love and His eternal plan.

It reminds us of the cross
and the way God rescued sinful man

The “3” represent the 3 days Jesus spent in the grave….
By His death, His children He did save

The “M” reminds us of the mercy the Messiah showed
as He died in our place.
and the miracle of the resurrection
so we can see Him face to face.

The “W” reminds us… that He alone
is worthy of our worship and praise
and calls us to be His witnesses
around the world for all of our days.”

—Bethany Tapp
