Sir Bunny is a poem written by D’arcy W Thompson.

The illustration was by C H Bennett.

Taken from A book of nonsense by Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll and others. First published in 1927, last reprinted in 1948.

SIR BUNNY is a splendid shot,
And every time he fires,
A farmer or a keeper falls,
Sometimes a brace of squires.

He went out shooting yesterday,
With young Lord Leveret;
But the wind it blew, and the rain it pour'd,
And both got soaking wet.
