CANADIAN ANGLING SONG.
The northern lights are flashing,
On the rapid's restless flow ; And o'er the light wave clashing, Swift darts the light canoe. The merry anglers come,
" What cheer—what cheer— We've salmon here." " Hurrah, you're welcome home."
The blythesome horn is sounding,
And the angler's loud halloo, And joyous steps are bounding To meet the brisk canoe.
" Hurrah—the angler's come," And the dells ring out To their merry shout, As they drag the salmon home.
The hearth is brightly burning,
The rustic board is spread ; To greet the sire returning, The children leave the bed.
With laugh and shout they come— That merry band To grasp his hand, And bid him welcome home.
