SONGS, ETC.
THE INVITATION,
The rising sun's resplendent beam;
Now gild the orient sky ; Up, angler, from thy airy dreams,
And to the streamlet hie.
Proud chanticleer has left his shed,
To hail the dawning day ; The lark has left his mossy bed,
To chant his matin lay.
The lowing herd upon the hill,
The lambs upon the lea, The happy plough-boy's whistle shrill,
The humming of the bee ;
The music of the budding grove,
The rippling of the stream, The milk maid's simple song of love,
The tinkling of the team.
All in one glorious swell unite,
Of harmony divine; To hail the rod and tackling light,
Their melody combine.
While sunk in sleep the sluggard steams,
Like hog within the stye; Up, angler, from thy airy dreams,
And to the streamlet hie.
