Fisher boy.

Fisher boy leaps headfast to embrace the shore

To claim the spoils of distant tides

One dime string on a bendy stick

Two time swoop and an empty hook

Third and fourth angling sun upon his back

Empty bucket still

And resolve strong as steel

Wipes his brow and picks a worm

Sails from the horizon dock

Dusk is nigh and heels start home

Little boy on scorched rock howls

“Sailors, ere long we shall match our catch!”
