Quotation by Bayard Taylor

Where the Moosatockmaguntic
Pours its waters in the Skuntic,
Met, along the forest side
Hiram Hover, Huldah Hyde.
She, a maiden fair and dapper,
He, a red-haired, stalwart trapper,
Hunting beaver, mink, and skunk
In the woodlands of Squeedunk.
Bayard Taylor (1825–1878), U.S. travel writer, poet. The Ballad of Hiram Hover (l. 1–8). . .
