A Fisherman's Sonnet

Poetry By: dibbledabble

I may have got a little carried away here. Firstly with it being Shakespeare’s 400th birthday I felt it only right that I write a Shakespearian Sonnet. I had to look up the format and it is challenging.
Then to add to the challenge I wanted to enter Irish Wolf Hounds Challenge, thus needing to enter into the poem part of a sentence from chapter 9 of her 'Shadows in Shadows' (very good it is too) I used "running cold rivers"
And then I had this mad idea of alliterating the poem too!

I think I managed it.
Here is the link for those mad enough to try too

The Fisherman's Sonnet

Pike pillage slow slack waters where Roach head

Dace dance, shimmering shoals in numbers safe

Silver slips like shillings on gravel bed

Eagle eyedHeron inshallow brooks pace

.

Elusive Eels migrate in murk unseen

Chub chase fry and with muscled trout compete

Rainbows race and mirror glint, backs of green

Dorsals duel beneath stricken Mayfly treat

.

Broad beamed Bream in deeper waters they stay

Giant girths like subaquatic moons flash

Existence exposed by a bright sunny ray

Crucian carp cruse out of reach roll and splash

.

Rippled running cold rivers amble and flow

Kindred Kingfishers and I love to go

.
