The Snare

Rating: 2.7
I hear a sudden cry of pain!
There is a rabbit in a snare:
Now I hear the cry again,
But I cannot tell from where.

But I cannot tell from where
He is calling out for aid!
Crying on the frightened air,
Making everything afraid!

Making everything afraid!
Wrinkling up his little face!
And he cries again for aid;
- and I cannot find the place!

And I cannot find the place
Where his paw is in the snare!
Little One! Oh, Little One!
I am searching everywhere!

I learned this poem back in the 60s in Mt Temple National School. Co Westmeath. I’m now 70 years old and have the same feeling as I did back then when I heard it for the first time.??
