For Rabbit

In a field of wheat I search for
you, my friend
You are a cagey creature
The minute I think
I have a grasp of you, you
disappear
only to emerge, the tip of your ear
waving from behind a stalk of wheat
saying, "Follow me!" or
"Don't. I don't much care."
I always follow
Like Alice's White Rabbit, I
follow you
and we play in your magical
strange
sad
funny
beautiful Wonderland; then
you slip away
and I learn how
to make some wonders myself
But don't you ever think
that I've forgotten you, my friend
I've come to this field of wheat
looking for that jaunty ear
waiting for you to

This happens so frequently these days...I always wonder why do friends have to go away, move on...moments shared with them lost somewhere in memories yet dear to heart....
Very well said!

I had visions of Christopher Robin playing hide and seek and Rabbit alternately chuckling and muttering "Oh dear, oh dear oh dear..." as he scrambled away.

Not only is this a beautiful piece of writing, it fits perfectly. I'm sure there are many of us feeling the same.
I love this poem Lola...
