Summer Fishing At Spruce Pond - Poem by R.Benjamin Abate

& Stupid

Staying up
Until four in
The morning

Would flop around
In Spruce pond

As we
Caught them

To celebrate

& We would save
All the fish
Until the

End of the
When we would

& Have a feast

But now
All we have
Are memories

Swimming in
& Out of our

    Excellent poem of consequence.This could be a statement on life. The excitement of youth and the productive years and finally the rewards finishing with the memories of old age. A very reflective , thoughtful poem. (Report) Reply
