  • Dedication: To Hugh Gordon. 'For sake of the meet and the muster, The hunts in the oak-scrub and plain; For sake of the old days, whose lustre May never shine round us again; In mind of the head-rope and halter, The mounts in the dawn and the dew, I lay my poor gift on the altar Of friendship and pledge it to You!' W.H.O.
