Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967).  The Old Huntsman and Other Poems.  1918.

37. Nimrod in September


WHEN half the drowsy world’s a-bed 
And misty morning rises red, 
With jollity of horn and lusty cheer, 
Young Nimrod urges on his dwindling rout; 
Along the yellowing coverts we can hear         5
His horse’s hoofs thud hither and about: 
In mulberry coat he rides and makes 
Huge clamour in the sultry brakes.
