i stand in a stream, facing the wind
in the cool air, i wish the sun in,
it's this time of year, to drop a line in
maybe this time my trout ,i will win.
my pole, my line, my array of tiny flies
the water, so cold. i picture a fight
a rainbow, a brown, a brook i might, reel
it in. my dinner tonight.
