Blithe were their hearts as they thor of the fish, And the stories they'd have to tell; But never a bite did one of them get 'Til the Captain gave a yell. "Avast, my hearties, I've got a fish The biggest one ever caught," And into the boat, with line and gaff, A sea bass white he brought. '"The white sea bass," quoth the Auertful one, "Good fortune brings to pass, For, concealed behind each fishy eye,. Is the luck stone of the bass." "Tis true, 'tis true, my shipmates," The Captain cried with glee, "I will show these stgnes to all my friends And they will envy me." Then fared they forth to AvalOn And up and down the street The Captain bragged of the lucky stones To all he chanced to meet. ":' Then up spoke a bold, Dillish wag, iI Who viewed the stones with gtee, "Show. us your luck, or take your" stones And throw them in the sea." "Come again with me, my two good friends, v And do not grumble so; This is a Magic Isle, and luck wilii smile, i Your Captain tells you so." So again they sailed on Avalon Bay, Gaily in :their motor boat; ' Each thought of the tuck they ought to have And hoped the motor would mote. 'Oh, Captain, I see a gleaming blob; Oh, pray, what may it be ?" And the Captain gave it a long, hard look, And said: "We'll go and see." And there in the waters of Avalon Bay Three lovely maids they see; And instead of bringing fish to their wives They brought in maidens three. Now, I ask you married fishermen, What kind of luck 'twould be If you pronfised to bring in nice, fresh fish And brought in chickens--three? Moral: Remember the Hesperus. Make us happy, too.
