I spotted them between the trees,
ears like streamers in the breeze,
striding with their long legs
in enigmatic zig-zags
to an impromptu arena of fresh grass,
two mad March hares:
an ardent buck boxed around the ears
by an exhausted doe, surprisingly fierce.
My response to dVerse Poets Pub Quadrille: Thinkin’ Inside the Box
Monday is here again and De is hosting the Quadrille with the word ‘box’.
We’ve been to Norwich twice this week and seen some of the delightful, brightly-coloured GoGoHares dotted around the city. My personal favourite is the harlequin hare outside Norwich Puppet Theatre.
I’ve also been looking at lovely artwork and greetings cards with hares on, so I couldn’t resist writing a quadrille about boxing hares!
