The Huntsmans Delight, / Or, the Forresters Pleasure. / The Dear are wounded but they are not slain, / Yet so they're wounded, that they are or' etain; / And in their taking pitty it is shown: / for why, 'twas thought that foxe there was with fawn. / The Keepers swore great Oaths, upon their lives, / they'd be as kind to them, as men are to their wives, / the pleasant sport this Ditty doth declare, / Of the Huntsmen, and the fallow Dear.
