Trout Coming Home

This poem was written and sent to us by Jacob S., a 2013 PA Brookie.  It reflects the trout’s journey home to find a mate.  The accompanying photos, also taken by Jacob, show some beautiful winter scenes.

 

Black capped chickadee huddles near its home to stay warm.

Home

As the sun cascaded from the heavens

The stream softly gurgled

The trees leaned as if they were listening

Birds were singing their sad, sad, song

 

As the water flowed smoothly over the rocks

A trout, beautiful in design

Swimming upstream

Gracefully cutting

Right through the water

 

Trying desperately to return

To the nesting grounds

Where his mate lay

To find the place he would stay

 

-Jacob S.

 

Gorgeous sunny afternoon in the winter.
Gorgeous sunny afternoon in the winter.
These are some serious icicles!
These are some serious icicles!
Sun finally breaks through to send some warmth our way!
