INTRODUCTION.

INTRODUCTION.
I. VI.

Far from wild, Once he fled,
Far from wood, Twice he fled,
In a field Over meadow
Rich and good; And garden bed.
II. VII.

Near to hill, Thrice he had
And winding glade, The rarest fun,
Lived the naughtiest Fourth was just
Hare e'er made. Another one.
III. VIII.

Father scolded, Mad the races,
Mother whipped, Jolly the Hare,
But every day Little did he
Away he slipped. Reck or care.
IV. IX.

Brothers three, The winds might blow,
And sisters two, The waters flow,
Cried and cried Over the hills
As off he flew. Away he'd go!
V. X.
Sore-sore-sore was the sobbing, "Don't you come home," the father said,
"Wild-wild-wild was his race; "Until you can stay in your little bed;
Only the woods to echo his footsteps, One more race and you keep away,
Only the winds-his hiding-place. Though you should beg and cry all day."





XI.
Alack!

He never came back;
That swift-footed Hare,

That knowing Hare,
That beast who didn't

Reck nor care.
"Whether swallowed alive,
Or hung on a rail,

Or dancing along
The waters pale,
Or running, or walking,
Or leaping a star,
He was gone so long,

And he went so far,
That the winds forgot

His very name;
And lost to memory,

Love, and fame,
He became in verity
The LOST HARE!

ADVENTURES.






Little Bossy Whitefoot
Grazing in a field,
Eating all the green grass,
Suck a tender, yield;
Dreaming of the days,
When she would be a cow,
How she wished that very time
Would come just now



She shook /her frisky feet,
And crinkl'd up hewr nose,
And tossed her /riti, hlad'1,
Then trotted on hwcr tos.
/When -looking deoon, she sar,
Two frightened eyes,
And there the Hare and Bossl, seodi,
In mutual sIrltrise/



"I'7 sOlry I /ha'e scared yoiU,
Saidl/ lis Haf r consilde'rale,
"Good by., I IImusl bet g(oi/g,r
For 1/ is 'e'y lale."

HE never were afraid!

The next he knew, with accent bold,
A dread voice cried-" Intruder-HOLD!"







"I'll butt you," cried a Goat,
If you don't get of 1 my rock."
The Hare could scarcely ,r.athe,
So frightful was the shock.
He gasped; he ,-ried to blt/r
A word with ;ia,''ning fraught,
But to save his ineck he couldn't
Control a single flhonght.

Wizen a horrible bellow,
A wheeze and a snort
Came close to his ears
With loudest report
And a Bull most furious,
With rage not spurous,
Dashed up with a curious
Bow and a stare.








Little Hare panting-
Angry Bull ranting-
Ah-what a race!
Oh, and he'll catch him,
Then e'll despatch him,
Pitiful chase!

Three little Lambs
Playing in clover
Called to the frightened Hare
Over and over.





"Come witzk s-h:/o tkis

Gasped he hI'g ast,

"RATHER NOT, INDEED!"
Each Lamb rubbed his eye,
Then s.i;,,d in calm disdain,
To see him onward fry.

In accents terse,
"Go further if he cares,
And fare much LorseL."

CONCLUSION.






CONCLUSION.


Had ever a beast such mad career?
Such a hare-brained race,
Such a long, long chase,
As this silly little Hare recorded here ?


This Hare, who wouldn't stop to fight,
Who ran away both day and night
Who put himself delightedly
Among the best of company,


Who acting soon a reckless part,
Then posted off with all his heart;
Forever he's compelled to roam,
He never can enjoy a home.


Hark! do you think that's rustling wind?
Oh no, its nothing of the kind;
It's this poor, homeless, restless Hare
Rushing here, there, and everywhere.


List! do you hear the rain-drops fall
In gentle shower from tree-top tall?
Oh me!
Oh my!
It's poor Hare pattering by.






By the light of the silver moon-moon-moon,
He runs to the rhythm of a dismal tune;
In the gay merry shine of a summer day,
He still is running, away-away.



In cold, in heat, in rain, in snow,
This poor little creature must go-must go;
Perhaps if you're there in time you'll see
This wandering Hare,
This miserable Hare,
Rush over the hill-top, bleak and bare.



Do you suppose he wishes his home to see,
His sisters two, and his brothers three ?
Would he like to lie down in his own little bed?
And does he recall what his father said?



And long for his mother to tuck him up tight,
Just as she used to, every night?
Who can say
As always
He goes on-and on-and on-and on---
