Easter Bank Holiday

Brings the arrival of the chocolate Bunny
and chocolate eggs which are also quite funny
There’s hot cross buns and Simmnel cakes
Or your own back garden for barbecue bakes

There are picnics and outings to National Parks
and beaches and playgrounds for fun and larks
and plenty of ways to spend your money
all encouraged by the Easter Bunny

There’s painted eggs which you can make
and find a Stately Home with a boating lake
or punts and cruises on the river
but take a cardi in case you shiver

If the weather is kind it could be hot
so take your sun-cream and slap on a lot
A bottle of water and a wide brimmed hat
something for the kids with a ball and bat

With friends and family time to spend
long lazy days which seem not to end
though travel and traffic may get in the way
but hopefully still have a wonderful day
