Druids and later “witches” were thought to shapeshift into hares for magical work. Because of this belief, according to Julius Cesar, it was considered taboo amongst the Celts to eat hare in case you were eating someone who was just shifting.
Come little leaves - George Cooper This was probably the first sing I ever learned. My Grandmother sang this song to me and told me she learned it in school when she was little (and she was born in 1893). Though I never heard anyone else sing it, I loved it and taught it to my kids and grandkids. I hope they pass it on, too.
