In his sad form lay a reflecting hare ;
For what else but reflect could he do there ?
Scared through the night, and harassed all the day,
To melancholy and to fear a prey.
“ That timid people,” thus said he,
“ Are truly wretched, well I see !
No good they get in all the food they find,
Doubt haunts their pleasure and assaults their mind. –
Such is my life—my wretched life,” he cries,
“ No sleep I know, except with open eyes.
Remove such fears, some wiser brain will say :
Indeed, is that so easy, pray ?
I make no doubt of what I hear,
That men, like me, are slaves to fear.”
Thus reasoned our poor hare,
And kept upon the watch
For every sound his ears might catch,
A prey to doubt and wasting case;
A breath, a shade, or sound upon the plains,
Kindled a fever in his veins.
While dreaming thus of his poor joys,
He heard, or thought he heard, a noise ;
A signal this for sudden flight--
Down through his hole of darkest night
He pierced; and gained the borders of a lake.
The frogs, alarmed, began to hop and quake ;
The frogs into their deepest grottoes fled.
“Ah, ha ! ” cried he, “ so I'am a cause of dread !
As others frighten me, so my bold face
Spreads terror through some other timid race !
Whence comes this intrepidity to me ?
I've trembling foes ; and they are fled afar,
And I am then a thunderbolt of war ! ”
The greatest coward on earth, I see,
May find a greater coward than he.
