Wild hare


There once was a man
With only one hare.
He washed it and combed it
And gave it great care.

But all day and all night
He’d feel his hare hop.
So he tried mousse and gel
To make that hare stop.

The answer he found
Was no cream, gel or mousse
But a brand new hare-spray
He called carrot juice.

    You are too clever, Going to share with my class. We have a lesson on homophones.

    Thanks Judy! I didn't know the name for it. My four-year old inspired this — he was excited to teach me that there are two meanings for hair/hare. Would be honored to have you share it with your class!
