THE FARMYARD HUNT.




S fair a Home as may be seen
S_ Is that of honest Farmer Green.
S_:._ Down in a lovely Vale it stands,
Encircled by fair pasture lands.

On these his herds of Cows are fed;
O'er sunny hills the Sheep are led;
Fat Pigs repose within their sty;
Above the trees the Pigeons fly.

A kimffly man is Farmer Green,
No want in his Farmyard is seen;
The creatures that within it dwell
Are sheltered, fed, and cared for well.

THE FARMYARD HUNT.

A happy life they well may lead,
Who on those rich green pastures feed.
And as to Poultry--Fowls--Ducks--Geese,
They, surely, ought to dwell in peace!

For they are blessed with a long run
Through daisied meadows, where the sun
Shines on the flowers and waving grass,
Through which the dainty insects pass.

Only at noon and eve they need
Return to the Farmyard, to feed,
And, when night falls, to seek their rest:
With food and freedom both they're blest.

And yet a trouble, grave and deep,
Has, lately, much disturbed their sleep;
For night by night, in some sly way,
Reynard has stolen a friend away.

And none can tell who next may be
The victim of his villainy;
Besides, it wounds a tender heart,
Thus from a relative to part.

THE FARMYARD HUNT.

To Trim, the Dog, one August day,
When blinking in the sun he lay,
A mournful Goose, with drooping head
And heavy wings, thus, sighing, said:-

" Dear Trim, I live in nightly fear!
I never a dear Gosling rear.
But, ere my child an egg can lay,
Sly Reynard carries her away.

" And yet our master does not kill
The thief that works such cruel ill."
Said Trim --" Dear Mother Goosekins, wait;
November will bring Reynard's fate."

" But why not now," Gallina cries,
There'll be no safety till he dies."
The Fowls loud cackled their assent,
And to her words importance lent.

Said kind old Trim--" I don't see why
We should not to defend you try.
Hunting, you know, is not my line,
But in that sport my brethren shine.

THE FARMYARD HUNT.

" Could you persuade the noble Hounds,
That dwell within Squire Edwin's grounds,
To take your part, you soon would see
What that sly Fox's fate would be.

" Go to the Kennels, tell your tale,
Your grief, I doubt not, will prevail;
For mercy to the brave belongs--
I think they will redress your wrongs."

Off to the kennels Goosekins went,
To find protection fully bent,
For pity and for aid she sues,
Nor do the Hounds her prayer refuse.

They promise Justice they will take
On Reynard, for poor Goosekins' sake,
And (if they only can get free)
Will hunt the Fox right willingly.

" Indeed," sa one, we often say
'Tis very s that men give way
To all his tricks, and theft, and crime,
Until they reach one certain time.

THE FARMYARD HUNT.

" It is not till the leaves turn brown
That they will hunt sly Reynard down;
Meantime he works no end of woe,
As you, dear Mother Goosekins, know.

" But, for the chase we also need
A Rider and a good fleet Steed.
Now, the Squire's Hunter's out at grass
In the next meadow that you pass;

" To ask his aid, dear Madam, go,
And let him all our purpose know."
Goosekins her warmest thanks bestows,
And to the Hunter's pasture goes.

She tells her tale ; the gentle Steed
Consents to help her in her need.
" I'll follow the good Hounds," he cried,
" Across the stiffest country-side.

" Nor shall I lack a Rider meet;
Squire Edwin's Monkey I'll entreat
To join the hunt, his jacket wear,
And this, our friendly chase, to share."

THE FARMYARD HUNT.

The Monkey listens with great glee,
In mischief always glad to be !
" Oh yes," he says, my pink I'll wear,
And ride with quite my master's air.

" In manly sports I much excel,
No man can ride or hunt so well;
And then my weight, you know, is light!
But do you mean to hunt by night ?"

" Well, just before the peep of day--
The Hounds can then best get away--
The Keeper will be fast asleep,
And not so strict a watch will keep."

Next day, at earliest summer dawn,
A strange group gathered on the lawn--
Hunter and Hounds, prepared to run,
And not a Man to share the fun.

With eager interest in the chase
The Poultry filled in every space;
Turkeys, Geese, Ducks, and Fowls were seen,
Mingled with Hounds, upon the green.

THE FARMYARD HUNT.

The Monkey, of his place quite vain,
Eagerly grasped the Horse's mane,
And, if he felt at all afraid,
No sign of apprehension made.

The Cock, who stood somewhat apart,
The signal gave for them to start,
And, like a silver clarion, blew
Defiant Cock-a-doodle-doo!"

The Dairymaid, asleep in bed,
Up from the pillow raised her head,
And cried, Oh! drat that tiresome bird,
His voice before the dawn is heard !"

But at the sound, with rapid pace,
The Horse and Hounds began the race;
The Pigeon, flying, was their guide,
And showed where Reynard used to hide.

And then, indeed, began the fun!
No one e'er witnessed such a run!
O'er hill and dale, o'er hedge and stream
They flew--swift as the lightning's beam!

THE FARMYARD HUNT.

Poor Jacko clung with desperate clasp
To the dark mane-lock in his grasp,
And, though the pace was very fleet,
Managed awhile to keep his seat.

But when a fence and narrow brook
At one bold leap the Hunter took,
The Monkey small resemblance bore
To those who rode that steed before.

Now by the river streams the chase,
The Fox in view, with feebler pace,
While on the morning air resounds
The chiding of the joyous Hounds.

Never, so early in the day,
Have Hounds and Hunter gone that way.
They startle every sleeping thing;
The Lark, aroused, begins to sing,

The early bird forgets his worms,
The Otter from his breakfast turns;
The Wild Duck, wakened from his dream,
Uprises from his native stream.

THE FARMYARD HUNT.

But Man awakes not yet to see
His vassals from restraint set free;
But, lost in sleep and calm repose,
Of this strange chase he nothing knows.

And now the Hunt is nearly done,
(Tho' long, indeed, has been the run,)
The foremost Hound, with eager rush,
Has seized on Reynard's drooping brush.

We need not say the Fox was killed-
The Hunter's promise thus fulfilled-
And Goosekins might henceforward rear
Her cherished Goslings without fear.

How the Hounds managed to regain
Their Kennels, we have asked in vain--
Some say the Monkey let them out,
But other stories are about--

Perhaps the Keeper let them in,
(Awakened by their noisy din,
When from the chase that morn they came,)
And silence kept for fear of blame.

20 THE FARMYARD HUNT.


But never more, o'er meadow green,
Will such a funny Hunt be seen--
Almost too strange to be conceived,
And by some people not believed.

Yet still old Trim that tale will tell,
While all the Farmyard listen well,
And cannot from the wish refrain
That such a Hunt may come again!
