Encountered this first many years ago as part a longer poem by David Young, back in one of
Conrad Hilberry's poetry classes at K. From a 13th Century poet...reminds me of Christopher
Smart's stuff. The English is pretty old but you can pick it apart and get most of the meaning.
And you've just gotta love the word wedrewardes.

Les nouns de un levre en Englais

The mon that the hare i-met
Ne shal him nevere be the bet,
Bot if he lei down on londe
That he bereth in his honde.
(Be hit staf, be hit bouwe),
And blesce him with his helbowe.
And mid wel goed devosioun
He shall saien on oreisoun
In the worshipe of the hare
Thenne mai he wel fare.

That thou come to me ded,
Other in cive, other in bred! Amen!
