THE WHOLE FORMING A COMPLETE MUSEUM FOR
THE LOVERS OF THAT PLEASING AND

RATIONAL RECREATION,

By TIOMIS BEST,
AUTHOR OF MATILDA, &c. &c.

As in successive course the seasons roll,
So circling pleasures recicate the soul:
When genial spring a living warmth bestows,
And o'er the year her verdant mantle throws,
No swelling innandation hides the ground,
But chrystal currents glide within their bounds;
The finny brood their wonted haunts forsake,
Float in the sun, and skim along the lake;
With frequent leap thay ringe the shallow streains,
Their silver coats reflect the dazzling beams.
Now let the fisherman his toils prepare,
And aim himself with ev'ry wat ry snare;
His hooks, his lines peruse, with careful eye,
Increase his tackle, and his rod re-tie. GAY
