The fire alarm went off the other day. So we dutifully got out of the building. I noticed two young women sitting on the grass with ... a rabbit, a beautiful big rabbit. Many of the residents have pets, but I've only seen the dogs and cats. So I joined the girls and they let me pet the rabbit. Let me tell you, I never looked at rabbits twice, but this one was the sweetest creature in the world.
It reminded me of my childhood, and a song my aunt used to sing to me along with gestures telling the story. It went like this:
In a cottage in a wood
A little man by the window stood
When a rabbit (la la la, I forget the words)
Knocking at the door.
Help me, help me, help, he said
All the hunters shoot me dead.
Come little rabbit, come to me,
Happy you shall be.
And it inspired this work in progress.
