Dove (River)
Oh, my beloved nymph, fair Dove,
Princess of rivers, how I love
  Upon thy flowery banks to lie,
And view thy silver stream,
When gilded by a summer’s beam!
  And in it all thy wanton fry,
  Playing at liberty;
And with my angle, upon them
  The all of treachery
I ever learned, industriously to try!
        Charles Cotton—The Retirement. L. 34.
