...About a rabbit hungry for love
Once upon a time there was an intrepid Rabbit who was looking everywhere for Love. Believing Love to be something the Rabbit could find, the Rabbit ran hither and there in the heather and the hay hoping that Love may just simply be laying around some place. But the more the Rabbit looked, the more a hunger set in. Unlike food, Love was not growing on shrubs. The Rabbit could nibble on lettuce leaves at anytime, but that did not obviate the new hunger. Love was nowhere, yet the Rabbit knew Love could be had. It soon occurred to the Rabbit that if anyone else had a Love of their own, they would not be so careless as to leave it behind.
