Aneira & Enfys Hare
Hares at Play
The birds are gone to bed, the cows are still,
And sheep lie panting on each old mole-hill;
And underneath the willow's grey-green bough,
Like toil a-resting, lies the fallow plough.
The timid hares throw daylight fears away
On the lane's road to dust and dance and play,
Then dabble in the grain by naught deterred
To lick the dew-fall from the barley's beard;
Then out they strut again and round the hill
Like happy thoughts dance, squat, and loiter still,
Till milking maidens in the early morn
Gingle their yokes and start them in the corn;
Through well-known beaten paths each nimble hare
Sturts quick as fear, and seeks its hidden lair.
Aneira is an old soul, a throwback to another time, and accordingly she refuses to wear anything from this century (or the last!). Her tiny old fashioned velvet coat and delicate lace dress were hand stitched from a lovely antique bonnet that I've been carrying around since I discovered them in a magical little shop in Devon (with just such a project for Aneira in mind!).
They are looking for a home today. Their price is $980 USD plus postage. They are art dolls and not suited for play, Aneira is sewn onto Enfys' back. Shipping charges are $35 to the US and Canada, and $50 for International.
