Pike - Poem by Ted Hughes

Pike, three inches long, perfect
Pike in all parts, green tigering the gold.
Killers from the egg: the malevolent aged grin.

    This is one of the great poems of the 20th century. The description of the fish, taking it to the next level in the monastery pond, fishing in its time - night, the classic sense of hunter being hunted, the sense of dread in contemplating pike, all come together to make a truly wonderful poem.
