The Mountain Hare

 The Mountain Hare

Happy is the mountain hare
Living high on mountain air
Oh! To be so free of care
Going here or maybe there
Times a nonsense long forgot
Rather is it cold or is it hot                                                                              

A care free wanderer on our mounts
and long aware what really counts
We who slave from dawn to dusk
To achieve what turns again to dust
Would that I could stay right there
But then I’m not a mountain Hare

    Yes, Brian, I often long to spend a day or so--but I'd settle for even a minute--in the mind of an animal. I'd enjoy sharing the thoughts of my dogs. Alas, I have to read it in their eyes. Thanks for prompting these thoughts.

    I've never considered being a mountain hare before, but you make it sound such an attractive life. Nice.
