Authors' Note: Our family pet for 14 years, George the Rabbit (Giorgio Coniglio in Italian) was an unpredictable and somewhat ornery soul. Talented and demanding (yes, he learned to do tricks), he did not care for traditional rabbit goodies like lettuce and carrots, but loved certain fruits including pears and apples. A small pile of apple twigs could keep him engaged for hours on end, and we were fortunate to have an apple tree growing near our back fence.

You can review these illustrated verses in a wider context by proceeding to 'Uprooted Verse: 'Poems about Trees' on the full-service blog "Edifying Nonsense".
