From the Evening Star, March 8, 1915. By Philander Johnson.

When you find yourself a-pinin’
    Fur a slow, sunshiny day,
An’ a chance to throw a line in
    Where the shadows are at play,
You forget ambitious dreamin’
    An’ the hard an’ selfish wish;
All the plannin’ an’ the schemin’
    Make no difference to the fish.

They don’t ask you how you voted,
    When they give your line a look.
Though you’re humble and unnoted,
    That won’t keep ‘em from the hook.
An’ the deal is square you’re gettin’
    Where the waters gently swish.
All the argument an’ frettin’
    Make no difference to the fish.
