A poem looking back on Easter holidays past; how times can change.....
No Easter Bunny

I offer up a story
Of Easter mornings past
A picture shining brightly
Through the looking glass

Children painting Easter eggs
In rainbow colours bright
Transforming them to princesses
Or chicks and lambs so white

Of lazy days on beaches
Or in gardens warm and sunny
Sumptuous picnics by the river
Even though there was no money

Those drunken days with friends
On Easter Sunday sessions
Brought love and games and laughter
And long lasting impressions

But no Easter bunny
Is going to come this year
He’ll bring no chocolate eggs
Nor spread his springtime cheer

The happy times die fast
With dear ones missed so sadly
As memories fade away
And this fresh start ends badly.

The blue spring skies are gone
Disappeared with the past
As I watch stories playing out
Through my glazed looking glass.
