Fishing

Written by: Nicole Owen

Teaching me how to put on the hook and bait,
He would cast it for me and then we'd wait

With three other kids he would go and help them too,
We would sit and watch for what bobbers do

Up and down the bobber would go,
We'd be so excited and let everyone know

Telling them we had a fish at the end of the line,
Reeling it in would take some time

Dad would want to help, but I'd say no,
This was a chance for all he had taught to show

Finally after what seemed like such a long while,
The fish hits land and I break into a smile

Mom says, "Hold up your fish!", and a picture she snaps,
This memory forever saved in a shutter and flash.
