A poem, written as the result of a request from a woman wishing to honor her grandfather's memory and main love in life --- fishing.




For years, the riverbank was where
Your soul felt most at peace
Your heart was most content when there
With the fish and the geese
But then, your spirit came to rest
Where angels chose to roam
And once equipped with ten pound test
You made yourself at home.


The sky became your deep blue sea
The clouds became your shore
And there, for all eternity
You sat with friends galore
Each angel was a fisherman
Who had traded his pole
For golden wings and a game plan
At Heaven’s Fishing Hole.


The tales you told about each catch
Its stature and its girth
Will live in memories unmatched
As days pass here on earth
Until we meet again, one day
Upon God’s golden sand
We’ll picture you, no other way
Than with a pole in hand.

Beautiful poem in memory of her grandfather.
A pole in hand. That is one of the memories of
my grandfather also. To fish South Creek across
the meadow.

This is the redeeming thought of all fishermen -- that they will be remembered with their pole in hand in spite of all their faults.

We're never apart,
As long as we stay,
A part of each other.

This poem is a real catch, not a fish story at all, but heaven's glory shown bright!
Fished this past weekend, remembering stories from long ago, then read your beautiful poem!

Thank you for sharing nature's blessings from God!

Beautiful tribute. It reminded me of my dear brother who passed away two years ago. He also loved fishing.

Many blessings,

It could be the great fisherman, too, looking down, to catch the best fish in the sea.

Your usual effortless adherence to the subject at hand.
