Fly Verse

I stand with a creel void of conquest - a lesson in life once more.
You can not catch that which does not wish to be caught.
But I am a fisherman.  So I turn, smile, and cast once more,
Wading upstream, hat-in-hand. - F.H.W.

I like it. Pretty soon Nora will be quoting from your blog instead of Frederick (book about a poet mouse).
