Over the bridge and far away...

A few years ago, I lost my bunny soulmate, Sir Harvey of Glasgow. He was a mini lop the colour of well aged Scottish whisky and had an attitude to match his fellow Glaswegians. When he passed away, I posted on a rabbit forum on Care2, and one of the bunny slaves replied posting a poem that a friend wrote for her, when her bunny passed away.

I don't know how this friend's name was, but I hope s/he is ok if I post here the poem, taking the poetic licence to change the bunny name into Archi Ann's... she's gone and this is our farewell to her, now leaping among clover and dandelions with perfect feet, over in the country at the Rainbow Bridge...


Archi rabbit
fluffy mop
twitchin' sniffer
hippity hop

to fro
padded feet
thumpin' toes
bunny beats

hoppin havoc
vacuum fright
carrots cords
bunny delight

leapin' lepus
resting now
rascal Archi
Carri Ann's pal


run free, little one xxx
