Foggy Morning

A Sonnet


“Give a damn”- John Fitzsimmons 


One day on a foggy morning in Maine

I went to the dock, excited to fish

I was determined, but then came the rain

To catch a massive striped bass was my wish


My father’s tackle box holds some fresh bait

He reaches out with that bait in his hand

I casted a line and began to wait

My dad taught me patience, which outlives the bland


As I have grown, this lesson makes more sense

Now I understand that to catch striped bass

The fisherman must use perseverance 

And not let an opportunity pass


When you’re young there are lessons to be learned

Dad taught me nothing is easily earned
