Another Gondal poem. In the manuscript, a second 'l' has been deleted from the word 'untill' (2nd verse), and the word 'copse' added to the third: these alterations appear not to have been made by Anne. They may be in Charlotte's handwriting, or equally, in that of a later editor.

|We know where deepest lies the snow,
And where the frost-winds keenest blow,
O'er every mountain's brow,
We long have known and learnt to bear
The wandering outlaw's toil and care,
But where we late were hunted, there
Our foes are hunted now.
We have their princely homes, and they
But I would rather be the hare,
