I prefer a hazel fork to witch
when cool waters need a’found,
though I have heard some prefer an elm
to help ’em wiggle under ground.
Yes, a feller’s gotta be a whole man
to water witch with any sense;
an untainted branch of hard wood
straight and true, no deviants.
No, I never trust a witch that wiggles
with a weepy willer switch.
And I never mind book-learned folk
claim my witchin’s just coincidence.
