Dear friends, we are turning 20 next year! Two years ago, 0.01% of all visitors made a donation. Last year, it was 0.02%. To all who have donated - a very warm thank you! Your generosity inspires me every day to keep going. Unfortunately, the current situation is not sustainable. Even if only 0.5% of visitors could make a donation, we could continue indefinitely - so please donate today and help keep this resource freely-available to all.    ---Emily Ezust, Founder

Winter's approach

Language: English

De sun hit shine an' de win' hit blow,
Ol' Brer Rabbit be a-layin' low,
  He know dat de wintah time a-comin',
De huntah man he walk an' wait,
He walk right by Brer Rabbit's gate -- 
  He know -- 

De dog he lick his sliverin' chop,
An' he tongue 'gin' his mouf go flop, flop -- 
  He -- 
He rub his nose fu' to clah his scent
So's to tell w'ich way dat cottontail went,
 He -- 

De huntah's wife she set an' spin
  A good wahm coat fu' to wrop him in
  She -- 
She look at de skillet an' she smile, oh my!
An' ol' Brer Rabbit got to sholy fly.
  Dey know.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
