The Magic of Transformation or . . .

Create One thing from ‘Nothing’
“Little Bunny has ears so tall,
Little Bunny has a tail so small.
He sits up straight and he wriggles his nostril.
What does he scent, do you suppose?

He hops on his toes to a curly inexperienced prime. 
He digs and he digs, and all of a sudden stops.
Tender carrot, not one, however two!
Little Bunny is aware of simply what to do.

He nibbles and nibbles ’til tummy is full.
After which he hip-pity hops away. . .
Till one other day!”
by Connie Manson
