The Rabbit and the Hare

 

 

Under the silver moon they dance

the rabbit and the hare.

Long ears and cotton tails

I glance way off over there.

Rabbits socialise and share,

underground they make their home.

Unlike the solitary hare

who prefers on land to roam.

Young rabbits are born inside the earth,

no fur, their eyes shut tight.

But hares in open air give birth

with big eyes open bright.

Both forage in the undergrowth

for grass and fresh green shoots.

Living amongst the meadows,

the forests and the roots.

Although they look quite similar

or that's how it appears,

the hares the larger of the two

Bigger feet and Longer ears.
