Easter story

Eggbert the Easter Egg

Eggbert the Easter Egg
was a tiny little Easter egg.
Cutest thing you ever saw
in the window of a big department store.

All day the children came.
Noses pressed against the window paid.
Spoke to Eggbert but Alas!
Eggbert cried because he couldn't answer back.

But all at once the clouds rolled by to let the sunshine through.
Believe or not! It got so hot that Eggbert split into two.
Out popped a baby chick.
A teeny weeny little baby chick.

And the children heard him say,
'Eggbert wishes you a Happy Easter Day!'
