Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Egg Hunt

We went racing round the garden

On our little legs.

Hunting for the hundred

Hidden Easter Eggs.

Under bushes, up in trees,

In the compost heap.

It was easy peasy,

This game of hide and seek.

 

Our mouths were crammed with chocolate,

Our pockets packed with sweets,

But we didn’t want to stop so that

Our brothers took the treats.

We trampled on the flower beds,

Dropped litter on the lawn.

Then a voice called from behind the shed,

It was my little sister Dawn.

 

She had found the biggest egg

We had ever seen.

Larger than a loaf of bread

And then my sister screamed.

For coming straight towards us

Was the mummy of our find.

It was an angry dinosaurus,

I’m not sure what kind.

 

We went racing round the garden

On our little legs.

Hiding from the hunter

Who’d laid an Easter Egg.

Under bushes, up in trees,

In the compost heap,

It made us feel quite queasy

This game of hide and seek.
