A Fishing Prayer

As its a sunday I'm posting an extra poem, without the 'twitter format' restriction. Its dedicated to my fishing instructor, companion, soul mate and true love

Worm and pellet, corn and bread
Cast offerings to the riverbed
By chub and perch, by roach and dace
Grant me good fishing in this place

 For stone and gravel, reed and bank
The water goddess I must thank
And leaf and flower and branch and tree
For shade and for tranquility

To bream and gudgeon, ruffe and rudd
Respect I offer, true and good
To grayling, salmon, barbel, trout
Reverence and praise devout

Hook and line and rod and reel
Thy rituals help my soul to heal
carp and eel and tench and pike
Please grant forgiveness for my strike
