Hare today…

November 13th, 2015

A lovely poem by Rowan Robert Wyatt – his website can be found here.

Hare today…  

Dancing above the tallest fronds of grass
The charcoal tips of ears, held aloft
The bobbing solitary giveaway of camouflaged brown.

Mad in March, boxing and chasing
Frolicking, mating rites in the sun
Seeing off stubborn suitors with a strong left hook.

Fooling around and chewing the grass
Few cares in the green meadow world
An eye on the ground and another firmly on the air.

Leverets little, brown bundles of fur
Born as the warm spring gives way
To summer, enticing, many chances for trouble and play.

The circle not to break as seasons pass
As spring, summer beget autumn, winter
And the hare plays on in the turning wheel of life.

  1. Beautiful Poem!
    I wrote a piece on Low D whistle last year (a reel) that I titled Mad March Hares. I can hear it in my head while reading this ‘Hare Today’. I have to find a way to record the reel to share with everyone. Hares are such wonderful creatures.

  2. R.R. Wyatt’s poetry is exquisite. He has the marvelous abilty of allowing his readers to see the world through his eyes both the beauty and the pain. Here he takes us on a wonderful romp with these descendents of childhood’s beloved Peter Rabbit. Thank you so much for sharing his work here!
