    I'm not clear whether the 'drooping of the eye'and the 'mantling of the blood' refers to the hare or the girl. It surely makes more sense if it refers to the latter, who again leaves him emotionally high and dry.What do others think?

    It´s hard to say if I like his poetic use of words or his imagery better.Wish I´d discovered his work earlier.
