The Hunter's Carol. Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


A merry life does the hunter leadA
He wakes with the dawn of dayB
He whistles his dog he mounts his steedC
And scuds to he woods awayB
The lightsome tramp of the deer he'll markD
As they troop in herds alongE
And his rifle startles the cheerful larkD
As he carols his morning songE
The hunter's life is the life for meF
That is the life for a manG
Let others sing of a home on the seaF
But match me the woods if you canG
Then give me a gun I've an eye to markD
The deer as they bound alongE
My steed dog and gun and the cheerful larkD
To carol my morning songE
