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
