The Lake

Calm, Clear, Cool –
The lake lies in its hole
whilst wondering in the woods
a fisherman has a goal

Sat on a chair
by the waters, still
he casts out a line
and goes for the kill

His float bobbles in the water,
awaiting a big fish
He’s hoping for a salmon,
for a suppertime dish

Finest lures he bought – on sale
and bait he uses – he hopes – prevail
the lake, keeps hidden, the whereabouts
of the big Salmon, or Lakeland trout.

The lake it seems is calm and still,
fisherman falls asleep until –
the noise under water makes him wake…
the fish are in another part of the lake.
