THE TWELVE DAYS OF FISHMAS

(An Angler's Carol)

For the Twelve Days of Fishmas my true love gave to me:
Twelve drumfish drumming,
Eleven stripers eeling,
Ten kings a leaping,
Nine oysters setting,
Eight trout a milting,
Seven shad migrating,
Six salmon spawning,

Five dor-a-do

Four arctic char,
Three tautog,
Two cuttlefish,

And a clam bed in the wind's lee
