Here is a horse to tame -
Here is a gun to handle -
God knows you can enter the game
If you'll only pay for the same,
And the price of the game Is a
candle -
One single flckering candle!

Hunting.

Certes It is a noble sport
And men have quittecd sell and
swum fort,
But I am of a meeker sort
And I prefer Surtees in comfort.

Reach down my" Handley Cross"
again.
My run,where never danger lurks,
With Jorrocks and his deathless train-t
Pigg, Binjimnx and Arterxerxes!

Coursing.

Most men harry the world for fun.*
Each man seeks t a different way
But0of all daft devils under the sun
A greyhound's the daftest said
Jorrocks J.


















February.








Racing.
The horse is ridden the jockey rides-
The backers back-the owners own
But ...there are lots of things besides,
And I should leave this play alone.

















March.







Boating.

The ope of Rome he could not nwin
From pleasant meat and pleasant sin
These who, in honour's hope, endure
Lean days and lives enforced pure.
These who9 replying not, submit
Unto the curses of the Pit
Which he that rides (0 greater shame!)
Flings forth by number not by name---
Could Triple Crown orjesuits oath"
Do what yon shuffle-stocking doth?

Fishing.


Behold a parable fished for B.
C took her bait ; her heart was set on D.
Thank Heaven, wh5 cooled your blood
and cramped your wishes
Men and not Gods torment yo, little
fishes.

Cricket.

Thank God who made the British Ises
And taught me how to play,
I do not worship crocodiles
Or bow the knee to clay

Give me a willow wand and I,
With hide and cork and twine,
From century to century
Will gambol round my Shrine.

Archery.


The child of the Nineties considers
with laughter
The maid whom his Sire in the ixties
ran after,
While careering himself in pursuit
of a girl whom
The Twenties will dub a"last century
heir-loom*.

Coaching.

The Pious Horse to church may trot.
A mald may work a man's salvation.
Four horses and a g*rl are not,
However, aids to reformation.

Oh Christian load your gun and then,

Boxing.
Read here the Moral roundly writ
For him that into battle goes -
Each soul that, Mitting hard and hit,
Encounters gross or ghostly foes:-
Prince, blown by many overthrows
Half bind with shame,half choked with dirt
Man cannot tell ut Allah inows
How much the other side was hurt !

Skating.
Over the See she flies
Perfect and poised and fair-
Stars in my true-love's eyes
Teach me to do and to dare *

Now will I fly as she fl"es ..
Woe for the stars that misled!
Stars that I saw in her eyes
Now do I see in any head !J




















December.










Now we must come away.
SWhat are you out of pocket?
Sorry to spoil your play,
But Somebody says we must pay-
And the candle's down to the
socket -
Its horrible tallowy socket I
