Fishing in the Sunset by Marilyn Lott Raun

Have you ever fished in the sunset?
I did so many years ago
I remember it like it was yesterday
I can still hear the water flow

I had used a little bobber
On the end of my line
Even though it was dark now
A bat found it a find

For it flew down and bombarded
The floating little ball
Thinking it was food I guess
But it wasn’t food at all

The colors of the night was
As beautiful as it could get
I will never forget the time
I was fishing in the sunset!

Black Watermelon Seeds
black watermelon seeds
when i was 4,
i ate a black watermelon seed.

i remembered hearing that you were not supposed to do this.

so i told my teacher and she said,
"uh oh dear, don't drink too much water and stay out of the sunlight."

and for weeks, i drank only milk, and didn't tell a soul.

because if i opened my mouth,
the seed might become whole.
