Trying Too Hard

left alone, hibernating
the rabbit ate with dismay
munching hay, with a vow to slay
dismay, much of it, a will to betray
how to get back but, digging out
is a waste of energy and display

left alone, hibernating
the rabbit slept with care
collected dried figs, like a nest too rare
care, much of it, a fear of other wild hare
how to share deprived but, timid emotions
a splurge of familiarity, naked thread bare
