The Fisherman

He threw the gray net out

Bubbles rose as the net sank

And the wind blew on

As the waves crashed against the boat

 

Only a heavy net

 Of water, kelp came up

 And the wind blew on

 As the waves crashed against the boat

 

 Like a tornado throwing down a house

 His net flew to the wooden deck

 And the wind blew on

 As the waves crashed against the boat

 

 For three nights he had thrown his net out

 Battling the waves and the wind  

 Heaving back ropes full of the leaves of the sea  

 In despair, he threw the net as the wind blew on

 And the waves crashed against the boat

 

 The wind blew

 With the waves crashing

 As his gnarled hands

 Pulled the gray worn net

 

 Under a crimson sunset

 A boat crashing against the winds and the waves

 Sailed home full of fish and a fisherman
