1723. Alpheus and Arethusa
 
(New Doric)
 
By Eugene Howell Daly
 
 
A NYMPH there was in Arcadie
  Who owned a crystal spring;
And there she ’d wash, sans mackintosh,
  B’gosh, or anything.
 
A youth there was in Arcadie        5
  Who hunted o’er the brooks;
He would not tote an overcoat,
  But travelled on his looks.
 
Though ancient Greece had no police,
  The gods did as they ’d oughter;        10
To put them quite from mortal sight
  They turned them into water!
