Honest to Cod

The Feeling of Fishing while Floating
Is Graded on Goading, and Gloating

Bystanders oft blindly believe
In salmon the size of my sleeve

Tall Tales at the Time Told True
In Grandeur they Gained and they Grew

But my Rod and Reel won't Remember
Come the Dread and the Din of December

And by the Time I again Tell my Tale
I Will have Wrangled Ahab's White Whale

    Well Joe, to me you did very well with your first Alliteration, these poems are not easy to do, it took me a long time to come up with mine, finding the words is the problem and making them work together!!

    Oh, you have me smiling in this one, Joe. My "rod and reel" remember great battles with denizons of the deep, though I must confess, I never wrangled with a whale. Happy Valentines day, my friend. Love, Carolyn
