Easter Eggs

Spring tradition to gather in a backyards
or open fields and place eggs 
where they can be found
by children carrying tubs or woven baskets.

Some eggs are boiled and decorated
others are colorful plastic.
Older children listening 
for the jingle in the artificial eggs
moving about quickly reminded
to leave some for the little ones.

After all the treats are found
they discover what each bounty holds:
robin’s eggs and marshmallow sweets
candied covered chocolate 

and jelly beans.
