His face is what I like.
And his head, much too big for his body- a toy head,
A great, rabbit–eared, pantomime head,
And his friendly rabbit face,
His big, friendly, humorous eyes-which can turn wicked,
Long and devilish, when he lays his ears back.
But mostly he's comical- and that’s what I like.
I like the joke he seems
Always just about to tell me. And the laugh,
The rusty, pump–house engine that cranks up laughter 10 From some long–ago, far off, laughter–less desert–
The dry, hideous guffaw
That makes his great teeth nearly fall out.
