Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Trees Are All Bare
The Choice Spirit's Chaplet, compiled by George Alexander Stevens (Whitehaven: John Dunn, 1771), page 100, has a verse that is missing in the previously cited volume. It goes after verse 5:

When the birds to the barn come hovering for food,
Or they silently sit on the spray;
And the poor timid hare in vain seeks the wood,
Lest her footsteps her course should betray.
