There once was an amorous rabbit
Who had an unfortunate habit.
He'd give one quick glance,
Do an impromptu dance,
Say 'Thanks for the chance' and just grab it!

One from the past for good measure.


How many hopeful gentlemen have gone to Redhead Beach,
Hoping to meet a girl with auburn hair?
And how many men have drifted home despondent and downcast
Because they didn't find a red-head there?
Only three percent of humanity is blessed with russet locks,
And most of them are braw redheaded Celts,
With a sprinkling of freckles, an aversion to the sun,
And a good old haggis tucked beneath their belts!
Most have fiery tempers and are passionate as well;
One could almost say that they are quite mercurial.
This description suits them whatever sex they be,
Whether the name is Malcolm or it's Muriel!
Some famous names will come to mind; Ginger Rogers, Danny Kaye,
Greer Garson, Rita Hayworth, Lucille Ball,
Woody Allen, Spencer Tracey, Nicole Kidman, Clara Bow......
They were famous and, indeed, were red-heads all.
But see the sign above which has a girl with auburn hair
Coaxing young men to dally in the sun!
I'd say that it's false advertising! All the men will find
Is a pinkish cliff!
 And Redheads? Not a one!

We looked after too such cute rabbits when the kids were little, long story short - they turned out to be boys instead of girls. Never have the words "Backs against the wall" had more meaning.
I am enjoying your alphabet posts.

I have a reference to a rabbit in my post. Unfortunately it is not particularly romantic.

I love your rhymes!
The rabbit and the redhead poems are perfect for R-week! Good images too.

Love the ryhmes and the photos. The rabbits are adorable. And, as for red hair, it is a coveted passion of mine (who was given mousey brown instead.)
