Today, I went down to the pond,
To catch some fish
But they were all gone.
Hours pass, feeling like I may not last,
I give it my all on the very next cast.
My jaw drops when I feel a bite.
All day I have waited for a fight.
My rod bends as he shows his might.
I see something splash, in my sight.
A fish! I get to eat good tonight.
He feels heavy, so I hang on steady.
As I pull up and reel in,
Fueled by adrenaline.
I see the top of its fin, eyes, and mouth.
I can’t hold it in; I begin to shout
I recognize this fish as a trout.
Rainbow colored and quite impressive,
My body fluttered to the ground,
My happiness amounts to that of a crowned
I leave the pond with my champion ring.
