|At this time each year, I buy a pair.
Exquisite, enchanting, chocolate;
Two hollow dark bunnies named Peter.
Last year I bought them at the last hour.
Beautiful, colorless chocolate;
Two hollow white bunnies for Easter.
This year I got them at the drug store.
Delightful, delicious, chocolate;
Two solid dark rabbits called Stover.
