PAGE FIVE "THE FISHERMAN'S FANCY" By Corinne Kirk (Ada Corinne G:ddi-~gs) In the Laguna Beach Life of Sept. 24, 1926 At the end of the day. by the summer se=, A fisherman casts his llne a., free As a boa:man tosses a coil of rope-- And, strange to say, with quite as much hope. Tho the hoatman sees where his coil will fall, The ~sherman aims at nothing at all. Wilh a wistful gaze he settles back--- Hi, whole appearance rather slack. The line may sag, and the pole may dip; But his eye is watchful--a smile on his lip. He seems to commune with invisible folk. The mist is a medium, and with sweeping stroke The arms of the ocean reach up from tho tide, Dispelling his worries: the sea strives to guide His thoughts to a vagrant vein, And sings to his soul a soothing strain. He may catch and reel and cast again--- Or bait and cast and reel in vain-- Just to be near the rolling sea. To hear her calling him thus to be freel Oh, that's the fisherman's quiet delight, In the lingering moments of fading light| So late he stays in the solitude, Tranquility marking his attitude. Do the mermaids smile from the rocks over there? Does he see them tossing their glossy hair? Or has Davy Jones been cracking a joke About the canny ways of fisher folk? 'Tis hard to tell; but be it known, When the last seagull to its rest has flown. And the fisherman, too, is seeking the cliff, | As free and ea'~y as the little skiff Is riding the surf in the bay below-- His heart with joy is all aglow! Perhaps he has lost his line and tackle-- Far better than that--each heavy shackle Of heat and traffic and business geind-- Is lost as well--they are left behind. So he pauses there, and with meek emotion He breathes "Goodnight" to God's great ocean.
