A Fishing I Will Go Today I decided to go fishing, So went to get my pole. I dreamt of catching the big one, But a perch, a more likely goal. The rod I had was broken, In not one place but two. I tossed the rod onto the floor Not knowing what else to do. I went up in the kitchen, And found an old broomstick. I looked at it and smiled; Yes this would do the trick. My line it seemed was broken too, So I went to get some more. I thought I had some in my desk, At least there was before. There inside, I found the spool, But upon it was no line. So I went down in the cellar, And found a ball of twine. Hmm! I thought to myself, Not the best but not the worst. It wouldn"t work all by itself, I need to attach it first. Stick and twine I now had, Next I"d need a hook. I went back to my old pole To have another look. It seems the hook was gone, For it had broken off before. I meant to get another one, Forgot, and there"s no more I sat there with a frown, Which turned into a grin For I thought of something else to use, Yup, a safety pin. What else, I thought, would I need? For it was getting kind-a-late. Why, something to put on the hook, A hot-dog would be great. I had all I needed now, So went out the front door. Only to see it was raining, And I mean a major down pour. So I guess this rhyme is over, There"s nothing more to say. Except that I am now all set, And tomorrows another day.

    As an amateur poet myself, and new to this place, I'm delighted to find that the first item to read hear was a most enjoyable poem...I understand some people saying: "more than a 100%" - here, I truly share their philosophy!
    Thanks Ewenart, I'm glad you enjoyed my rhyme. Also welcome to our little corner of the net we like to call The Den. Looking forward to reading some of your work to.
    lol Excellent, Pirate!
    I loved this! For me, it conjured up warm images of my grandad.... bumbling around the house on a mission but never really getting anywhere. You certainly created an atmosphere here and made the reader smile Smile
    Again thank you Kerri. I am honored to have brought back a fond memory of your grandfather.
    "My line it seemed was broken to," -- add an "o"

    Another swell piece. Good job
    Thanks DF. Good eye
