BRITISH SPORTS, for the Amusement of CHILDREN

[Illustration: PHEASANT SHOOTING.]

    See the Fowler takes his aim,
    To bring down the feather'd game;
    September Season is the time,
    When these birds are in full prime.


_Printed, Published & Sold by W. Belch, Newington Butts._



    How happy & frisky the Rabbits appear,
    Prancing & skipping without any fear;
    But alas, their enjoyment is like to be short,
    By the aim of a Gunner who seeks them for sport.



    Baited by Dogs, the Badger dies,
    A cruel sport it thus supplies,
    The Skin is by the Furriers bought,
    And thus for gain & pleasure sought.



    Goaded with Spurs they seem to fly,
    Like lightning to the human eye,
    Stretch out their necks to gain the post,
    While thousands on the course are lost.



    The timid Stag with eager bounds,
    Strives to escape pursuing Hounds;
    In vain he flies he's doom'd to die,
    Whilst shouts of Huntsmen rend the Sky.



    They beat the Bush to find a Hare,
    And thus for a long chace prepare;
    Poor gentle Puss thy fate is hard,
    And it with pity I regard.



    The Fox is Reynard sly and cunning,
    Often with our Poultry running;
    To hunt him yields a manly sport,
    And numbers to the chace resort.



    Angling will oft our patience try,
    Ere we a dish of Fish supply;
    Yet many love the rural sport,
    And to the Brook or Lake resort.
