Subject: RE: title req.: fox hunt song from 50s
Unfortunately, that is all I have. It is a kids poem/song. It is about a fox hunt, where hunters are chasing a fox, the kid sees the fox go by, and he won't tell the hunters where it went.

I'm searching for this to help a librarian who is trying to help a patron. The patron remembers the poem/song from school in the 20s. (Hmmmmm...Now I read that again and realize the poem/song must be older than I thought 1920s or earlier, not 1950s)! I remembered that lines from the poem/song were in the book "Miracles on Maple Hill" by Virginia Sorensen. The book does not quote the entire poem/song, nor does it credit the title or author. ARGH!!

I don't have the book here, (my copy is in storage) or I'd quote you exactly what lines I have.

Does that help any?

Thanks!
