A Fishermans Tale - Poem by John McKeon

If you want to catch fish
and you are making that wish
Take a trip to a bridge or a dock
and there you will find
in the water below
in the sun cast shadow
the school you will learn
like the fish have so soon
the shades of light and dark

From Wisdom of the Salmon, a druids tale, I imagine.
