Let's go fishing
in the brook.
I'll grab the poles
you get the hooks.

I'll bring the reels
you bring the bait
to catch some fish,
I can't wait.

    My daddy used to say, there's no such thing as a bad day for fishing.  Do you like fishing? Your challenge for today is to write a poem about something you like to do.  And as always, you're welcome to leave your poem in the comments.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       


  1. Hi Joy,
    I don't fish, but I've done my share of manning the Fishing Booth at Fall Festivals. It's always a favorite.

  2. Now, there is something I haven't thought about in a long time. The Fishing Booth at the school carnival used to be one of my favorites.
    I was also a sucker for the cake walk, although I never won that, even though I had visions of taking home a big coconut layer cake for my mother.
