The Egg

Sometimes, you just find yourself poking around the free! out of copyright! books on the Project Gutenberg website. Right? Okay, maybe that's just me.

But look, here's an egg.

the moral of this verse is applicable to the young: be terse

You know, for Easter. It's not dyed, and it's not hiding under a hydrangea, but it's an Easter egg none-the-less.

Go forth, nibble the heads off of bunnies and make egg salad with the dozens of eggs you undoubtably dyed.

Happy spring!

This egg is from A Moral Alphabet, by Hilaire Belloc, illustrated by Basil Blackwood.

I always wondered what people did with those eggs after they dyed them. Now I know.

Happy Easter (and chocolate) to you too!
