Mom sent me on an egg hunt
She said look for pretty colors

But all I really wanted was
My favorite breakfast crullers

She shooed me out the door
Told me to have some fun

Bring back lots of goodies
Enough for everyone

When I got back from the meadow
Mom said, Goodness! What a mess!

What happened, what did you do?
To your brand new Easter dress?

I tried explaining carefully, how
My basket became overloaded!

And when I tried to empty it
All the eggs inside exploded!

Mom looked at me rather strangely
Then a smile came to her face

Laughing she said, it looked much better
Then it did, in the dressmaker’s place
