THE RABBIT, by            
First Line: Not even when the early birds
Last Line: To kill him in the morning light.
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Animals; Rabbits; Hares


Not even when the early birds
Danced on my roof with showery feet
Such music as will come from rain --
Not even then could I forget
The rabbit in his hours of pain;
Where, lying in an iron trap,
He cries all through the deafened night --
Until his smiling murderer comes,
To kill him in the morning light.
