Rann the Kite brings home the night
That Mang the Bat sets free
The herds are shut in byre and hut
For loosed till dawn are we.
This is the hour of pride and power,
Talon and tush and claw.
Oh, hear the call!Good hunting all
That keep the Jungle Law!
Night-Song in the Jungle
was seven oclock of a very warm evening in the Seeonee
hills when Father Wolf woke up from his days rest, scratched
himself, yawned, and spread out his paws one after the other
to get rid of the sleepy feeling in their tips. Mother Wolf
lay with her big gray nose dropped across her four tumbling,
squealing cubs, and the moon shone into the mouth of the cave
where they all lived. Augrh! said Father Wolf.
It is time to hunt again. He was going to spring
down hill when a little shadow with a bushy tail crossed the
threshold and whined: Good luck go with you, O Chief
of the Wolves. And good luck and strong white teeth go with
noble children that they may never forget the hungry in this
was the jackalTabaqui, the Dish-lickerand the
wolves of India despise Tabaqui because he runs about making
mischief, and telling tales, and eating rags and pieces of
leather from the village rubbish-heaps. But they are afraid
of him too, because Tabaqui, more than anyone else in the
jungle, is apt to go mad, and then he forgets that he was
ever afraid of anyone, and runs through the forest biting
everything in his way. Even the tiger
antiqued paper is delicately laced with a subtle hint of gold
in the creases creating an almost magical look. (Although
its difficult to catch with a camera, you can see in
the image below how the shimmering is caught in the light)
