"He was only a small round ball of fur / Diminutive delightful and dinky / For all I know he might have been a her / But was jet black so I called him Inky"

Transcendental Sonnet #1303:



He was only a small round ball of fur

Diminutive delightful and dinky

For all I know he might have been a her

But was jet black so I called him Inky


I used to change the ribbon on the typewriter

Which belonged to Grandma as a favor to her

And that jet black ink would get all over my hands

Anyone who remembers such things understands

Grandmas and memories and that small black bunny

Things like these which make this life worth living

Cannot be had for any amount of money


So that is why I ended up giving

Inky to the Cahill kids because they loved him so

They gave him the very best home a bunny could know
