The South Wind A Fisherman’s Blessing By Charles Kingsley

The South Wind A Fisherman’s Blessing

O blessed drums of Aldershot!
O blessed South-west train!
O blessed, blessed Speaker’s clock,
All prophesying rain!

O blessed yaffil, laughing loud!
O blessed falling glass!
O blessed fan of cold gray cloud!
O blessed smelling grass!

O bless’d South wind that toots his horn
Through every hole and crack!
I’m off at eight to-morrow morn,
To bring
such
fishes back!

Eversley, April 1, 1856.
