Good Reader

Good Reader :

GOOD reader, if you e'er have seen,

When Phoebus hastens to his pillow,

The mermaids with their tresses green

Dancing upon the western billow;

If you have seen at twilight dim,

When the lone spirit's vesper hymn.

Floats wild along the winding shore,

The fairy train their ringlets weave,

Glancing along the spangled green--

If you have seen all this and more,

God bless me! what a deal you've seen!
