augury doggerel

Two hares just loped across our sunny grass. Original of the Easter bunny and symbol of the fertility goddess Eostre, the hare is precocial, crepuscular, nocturnal: leverets are born wide-eyed and furred, ready for life in the twilight and the dark. It's good to see them � they're fading � but not to see them scared up and out in the daylight. A hare in distress screams like a woman being murdered.
