ON ANGLING.
The water rushed, the water swelled,
And touched his naked feet, And fancy whispered to his heart
It was a love, pledge sweet: She sung another siren lay,
More 'witching than before, Half-pulledóhalf-plungingódown he sunk,
And ne'er was heard of more.
ANGLING.
Come change your taper rods, mv lads Your palmer flies, and eke your gads, Your silken lines, and yellow hackle, For stouter arms, and firmer tackle ; The "trouties", prithee spare just now, 'Twere shame to kill them, boys, T vow ; But if you seek a noble prize, Deep in the stream, we know, there lies A pike, that in half hour to kill, Would be a test of Angler's skill ; That Pike our evening meal must he. So forth, I'll hear your company.
