DIANA, by                    
First Line: I am always carving arrows
Last Line: Or a fawn with blue eyes.
Alternate Author Name(s): Shearer, Harold H., Mrs.
Subject(s): Diana (goddess)

I am always carving arrows
Or polishing my bow,
Yet why I care for hunting
I do not seem to know.

For they are long and lonely,
The ways of wood and hill,
And it is wearisome to seek,
And sorrowful to kill.

But I am always hoping,
I shall carry home some prize,
Like a white-feathered squirrel,
Or a fawn with blue eyes.
