Easter Poems for Children
By Josie Whitehead
Five brown hen’s eggs
Were lying in a nest -
And one egg began to crack
And perhaps you may have guessed -
A tiny chicken peeped around
And blinked his small black eyes.
He looked around the farmer’s barn
And had a big surprise:
There were lots of other baby chicks
Who were busy with their play:
'Come on out and join us here
Upon this Easter day!'
His mother looked down at her chick
And clucked with great delight -
And little chicks at Eastertide
Are such a pretty sight.
But the Easter egg which I suppose
That you will like the best
Is bound to be the chocolate egg
Which you won’t find in a nest.
