The Wish Of A Goldfish


Allegorical reference.


goldfishSitting by the river.
Saw a gold-fish.
It bade me near
and expressed a wish

Startled to hear a goldfish speak.
I got down into the river.
The fish came up in a wink
and asked me to come closer.

Enamoured by its charm
I got closer and closer.
It took me by my arm
and looked at me like a lover.

Lovingly I held the fish
in my palm
Stuttering it spoke about its wish.
in a voice calm.

The speech was so low
I missed it mostly.
The fish jumped into the flow
disappearing completely.

What did it say? I think .
Would it have said anything worthy?
Unable to decipher, I blink.
Well, that is the end of the story.
