THOMAS DURFEE (D'URFEY)
English dramatist and humorist
(1653 - 1723)

Of all the world's enjoyments
  That ever valued were,
    There's none of our employments
      With fishing can compare.
      - Pills to Purge Melancholy--Massaniello--Fisherman's Song
        [Fishing]

'Twas on the inner bark, stripped from the pine,
  Our father pencilled this epistle rare;
    Two blazing pine knots did his torches shine,
      Two braided pallets formed his desk and chair.
      - What-Cheer (canto II) [Pine]
