Poems # 2 - I Saw A Jolly Hunter

The second of my poem illustrations... 'I Saw a Jolly Hunter' by Charles Causley. Instead of doing a separate illustration for the facing page on this one, I decided to continue the scene across the spread with the hare on the left hand side.

'I saw a jolly hunter
With a jolly gun
Walking in the country
In the jolly sun.

In the jolly meadow

Sat a jolly hare
Saw the jolly hunter
Took jolly care.

Hunter jolly eager
Sight of jolly prey
Forgot gun pointing
Wrong jolly way.

Jolly hunter jolly head

Over heels gone
Jolly old safety catch
Not jolly on.

Bang went the jolly gun
Hunter jolly dead
Jolly hare got clean away
Jolly good, I said.'
