WILLIAM BASSE (BAS)
English poet
(? - c. 1653)

Renowned Spenser, lie a thought more nigh
  To learned Chaucer, and rare Beaumont lie
    A little nearer Spenser, to make room
      For Shakespeare in your threefold, fourfold tomb.
      - On Shakespeare [Shakespeare]

The first men that our Saviour dear
  Did choose to wait upon Him here,
    Blest fishers were; and fish the last
      Food was, that He on earth did taste:
        I therefore strive to follow those,
          Whom He to follow Him hath chose.
      - The Angler's Song,
        also found in Izaak Walton's The Compleat Angler
        [Fishing]
