On thy gentle stream

Upon thy winding side wild gwash I lie 
Viewing with curious eye the silver bream 
Taking vaunting springs to trap the thoughtless flye 
That heedless dances on thy gentle stream 
The black snail wakens from the swoons of day 
& from the boughs that nestle by thy side 
The light wing'd moths steal out again to play 
Crossing with hasty wing thy rippling tide
