The Fox And The Hare

I wouldn’t usually clutter the tune base with my own compositions but awhile back Ceol requested samples of our own work so here is one of mine.
While sitting on my back porch looking out across a pasture of high grass, I could see a red fox bobbing above the grass to catch a better view of the prey he pursued. Hop - hop - hop - hippity - hippity - hop -hop. As he closed on his prey he seemed to be almost dancing a hornpipe. I wrote this tune to celebrate his dance.
Cheers! 🙂
