ON ANGLING. 1-17
SPRING MEETING OF THE --------- CLUI3
Hail, Angling pleasure, The heart's dearest treasure, In musical measure
We make the hall ring ; Since life is fleeting, From fate no retreating, Enjoy, then, our meeting
To greet the new Spring.
Sure 'twould be treason, Against sense and reason, At this happy season
Our joy to restrain ; For sorrows and sadness Is nothing but madness, When innocent gladness
Solicits the strain.
Wake the loud chorus, Sport is before us. Streamlets invite us
Their pleasures to sing; Then join in repeating Our wish for completing The plan of our meeting
To hail the new Spring.
