ALL OF US GO FISHING THROUGH EXISTENCE ! Some cast a fly and watch it lie Upon the silvery stream. Some cast a worm and witch it squirm, And think they hear it scream. Some cast about when they're in doubt For a bait that gets the beauties. Some cast away a chance each day-- Some cast aside their duties. Some fish for fame, for some fair dame, Or for a raft of money. Some wish for toil close to the soil, Some wish for milk and honey. Some fish for cheers that please their ears, When heard from any distance. Thus all of us, with loads of fuss~ Go fishing through Existence! --Coronado JourmJ, Avalon Branch of the Los Angeles County Public Library, 201 Metropole avenue, open Monday, Wednesday and Saturday afternoons from 2 to 5; also Wednesday and Saturday evenings from 7 to 9 o'clock.
