Mountain Hare poem
Maukin, maigheach-gheal, mountain hare
the shape winter takes in spring
melting into the cracks
where the cold still clings,
the leap from the lea
ahead of the fox’s shadow
as fire chases ice,
the mittened fist
hiding the surprise
—If you enjoyed this and you are thinking 'how on EARTH can I support this young man' then why not...
