Intrepid Duo

2


Imagine boys in summer,

knee-deep in flowing waters,

Jeans above their knees,

hands wet and slimy

with the remnants of a passing frog…or two.

The brine of seaweed

floating there,

Causing ripples in the brook,

As striders skate across the top

and dance along the murky film.

Two boys intrepid in their cause

to catch a passing fish,

Just so they can throw it back,

or eat it

if they wish.
