When musk odours, heart regaling, All the mornitig mead perfume,
From the new-mown hay exhaling, I'll the Fisher's Wand resume.
Yea, when autumn's russet mantle,
Saddens the decaying year, I will Fish, and I will chant, till
Feeble age shall change my cheer.
1645.                               FROM THE ''ANGLERS."
Though jest-loving wight, has thought tit to define, In sportive derision, each angling brother,
As "a slick and string (id est, rod and line,)
With a rvorm at one end and a fool at the other."
Vet believe me, no fool is the man who in quiet Can sit down contented amid the world's din ;
'Tis fashion's blind vot'ry, who, dwelling in riot, The slave is of folly, of care, and of sin.
