Poem Title:  Out Fishin'

Poem Category:  Nature Poems

Poet:  Edgar Albert Guest

Poet Biography: 
Edgar Albert Guest (1881-1959) was born in England but moved to the United States when a child.



Poem: 
A feller isn't thinkin' mean, Out fishin'; His thoughts are mostly good an' clean, Out fishin'. He doesn't knock his fellow men., Or harbor any grudges then; A feller's at his finest when Out fishin'. The rich are comrades to the poor, Out fishin'; All brothers of a common lure, Out fishin'. The urchin with the pin an' string Can chum with millionaire an' king; Vain pride is a forgotten thing, Out fishin'. A feller gits a chance to dream, Out fishin'; He learns the beauties of a stream, Out fishin'; An' he can wash his soul in air That isn't foul with selfish care, An' relish plain and simple fare, Out fishin'. A feller has no time fer hate, out fishin'; He isn't eager to be great, out fishin'. He isn't thinkin' thoughts of pelf, or goods stacked high upon a shelf, but he is always just himself, Out fishin'. A feller's glad to be a friend, out fishin' A helpin' hand he'll always lend, out fishin'. The brotherhood of rod an' line An' sky and stream is always fine; Men come real close to God's design, Out fishin'. A feller isn't plotting schemes, out fishin'; He's only busy with his dreams, out fishin'. His livery is a coat of tan, His creed -to do the best he can; A feller's always mostly man, Out fishin'.
