I Have a Little Bunny Rabbit
by Katrina Lybbert

I have a little bunny rabbit,
Hop, hop, hop!

With whiskers so long and fine,
Hop, hop, hop!

My bunny has two tall ears,
reaching up to the sky;
And a furry little tail,
I saw with mine own eye.

What a precious little bunny rabbit,
Hop, hop, hop!

(This poem can be acted out.)
