Love and fishing


One day I cast in the river of love
A speckled beauty looked my way
Iridescent in a sparkling sequined dress
My head said no my heart said yes, yes yes.

I cast a glance in her direction
She slowly swam to take my bait
My heartstrings tightened, my reel began to spin
I set the hook, but I was way too late.

Guess she’s the one that got away
I set the hook too slow
Didn’t give the line its proper play
Perhaps our paths will cross
Again some blissful summer day
Guess she’s the one that got away

Back on the river just to pass the time
I heard a splash and turned upstream
For just a second spied that iridescent tail
Was this a second chance or just a psychedelic dream.
