We’ve had some scares, but we looked blank
When, resting there and chumming,
One glanced by chance upon the bank
And saw the farmer coming!
And home impressions linger yet
Of cups of sorrow brimming;
I hardly think that we’ll forget
The last day we went swimming.
Verses Popular and Humorous, 1900.http://www.middlemiss.org/lit/poetry/dayswi
