During my time at Undercliffe Public School an effort was made to use the Bilby as
the Egg-bearer at Easter.This song was written to aid that process of changing the
established cult of the Rabbit and with the hope of helping to reverse the danger of
extinction of the Bilby.


Words: Phyl Lobl, shop March 1996

When the harvest time is done,
Moon will share the sky with sun,
Then the Bilby makes a run,
With sweet surprise for everyone. Flash of white,
Bilby’s on the way,

Flash of white,
Bilby’s on the way,
In the light
See a splash of pink and grey
On Easter Day.

Eggs all coloured opal bright
Bilby makes them fit just right
In the Tucker Bag at night
To be a morning’s shared delight.

Ritual and care can bring
New life to a dying thing.
Hope is like a sign of Spring
That blooms when all the children sing.
