    A wounded deer leaps highest,
    I've heard the hunter tell;
    'Tis but the ecstasy of death,
    And then the brake is still.
    The smitten rock that gushes,
    The trampled steel that springs,,
    A cheek is always redder
    Just where the hectic stings
    Mirth is mail of anguish,
    In which its cautious arm
    Lest anybody spy the blood
    And, you're hurt exclaim.
