    Just alittle poem to remember next time the big one gets away

    I walk up to the river and in it I peer.
    So soothing is the water and crystal clear.
    A slight wind from the west awakens the trees.
    I watch as they dance in this sweet cool breeze.
    Tired is the sun as it sinks in the sky.
    Little time left so my best I must try.
    I reach back with my arm then bring it down like a hammer.
    Releasing my line, in the most graceful of manner.
    Through the air my lure soars, what seems like a mile.
    Evoking from me, a most pleasurable smile.
    A perfect cast, a wonderful shot.
    I see my bait slip flawlessly into the best of spots.
    Slowly I reel taking in slack.
    Just then an explosion, a vicious attack.
    Hard I pull back.
    Then from nowhere a snap.
    The fish was gone to travel on.
    An outing on the bank all gone wrong.
    A 7 Dollar lure still in his lip.
    I hang my head low holding my rod at my hip.
    He got lucky this time, but not the next trip.
