First time I hunted with the Kildare Hounds


First time

I hunted with the Kildare Hounds

It was the first Hunt of the season

The Master

Blooded the Hounds with a young fox

He Presented me with the foxes tail

A rich ritual

To remember the day

I thanked him

Put it in my pocket

Threw it into the nearest ditch

And sickly I rode away
