John Constable's hare

I was here before the world began,
before the earthworks and the standing stones,
over the wide open wilds I ran
the fastest thing in skin and bones.
Diana's pet, the dam of God's toy,
revered, reviled and hunted by hound,
almost unseen under the apocalyptic sky,
an afterthought running across the open ground
towards the corner of the frame -

remember my name

remember all my names...
