The Old Bass Ground
by Francis H. Buzzacott (1913)
Our boat was a clumsy, leaky scow, made from an old barn door;
Our poles were long and springy cane, bought at the village store;
And the bait? Well sir, there's nothing that Bob and I ever found
To equal a lively meadow frog on the Old Bass Ground.
I recall the whopping "Bronzeback" I hooked after dark one night.
You don't mean it, Bob! The bass is still there? In that same quiet spot?
~ Francis H. Buzzacott
