Looking For A Poem
(10/17/2011 3:37:00 PM)
Well, with several hours more searching, I've found the answer myself. Not de la Mare at all, but Arthur Hugh Clough. Once I stopped including 'de la Mare' in my search, Google turned up a lady, Elainesweet, asking my very question on murmurs.com on December 3,2006. The answer was provided, all of three minutes later, by DrinkTheElixir: Dipsychus, by the said AHC. I found the full poem at http: //www.bartleby.com/71/1007.html. The correct refrain is
'So pleasant it is to have money, heigh ho!
So pleasant it is to have money.'
