LOVESONG TO AN ALASKAN FISHERMAN

LOVESONG TO AN ALASKAN FISHERMAN

If tame you want 
Tis fool you’ll get
In fishing North high seas
But if you go a trolling
And you catch a fish like me
Prepare for love ---prepare for war
There’s not a moment’s peace
And you’ll forget flushed one nightstands
And follow schooling breeze

Oh-- I had loved you mighty
Knocked the pluck right from your chest
Gave you babes and warmed your nights
And wove your babes a nest
And fool you were to throw back in
A love that topped them all
But one last chance awaits you here
To heed bold Nature’s call

So head inland and fight the gales
That plague this stormy sea
Think of love that grabs your guts---
There is no fish like me.

    Victoria, you are gifted with the ability to put into words things that would put most to shame. Beautifully done and well said. .... Jake
