The Christmas Hare

The Christmas Hare

written by: Kim M. Russell



In a snowy field one Christmas Eve
I spied a windswept hare
leaping and gambolling
in the frosty air.
The tawny coat beguiled me,
framed by the dazzling white
of the wintry blanket
spread out for the night.
As I watched the hare cavorting,
the sun began to sink
and the backdrop to its dance
flushed a bashful shade of pink.
The creature turned and saw me,
its eyes of amber sparked,
and with that the snowy field
vanished in the dark.
