Hunting Song

Rating: 3.1
Waken, lords and ladies gay,
On the mountain dawns the day;
All the jolly chase is here
With hawk and horse and hunting-spear,
Hounds are in their couples yelling,
Hawks are whistling, horns are knelling,
Merrily, merrily mingle they
Waken, lords and ladies gay.

Waken, lords and ladies gay,
The mist has left the mountain gray;

Waken, lords and ladies gay, To the greenwood....beautiful poem and songs on the hunting life of the kings and delightful ladies The poem crafted this hunting song very aptly with the poetic words and so delightful rhyming which is really pleasure to read; here the life of hunter in the greenwood and for the life there some beautiful ladies companionship in hunting is very remarkable to enjoy the life.

'Merrily, merrily mingle they Waken, lords and ladies gay' - well described, easy to understand, quotable lines.

Beautuful hunting song, suitable for those days, now-adays it's obsolete, I think. Thinking of the animal Party in my country, but our Royal Family still hunts, I know. Congratulations on the choice of Poem Hunter and Team, the best choice ever for the great poet Sir Walter Scott

Waken, lords and ladies gay, To the greenwood haste away; We can show you where he lies, Fleet of foot and tall of size; We can show the marks he made very nice poem. tony

A beautiful hunting sport preparatory poem for awakening lords and ladies to make haste to go to forest for hunting game. A well deserved classic of the day
