       ELizabeth Bishop was a 20th century poet who wrote a long poem called "The Fish." What I learned about her was that she was a perfectionist when it came to poetry, and that she worked at this poem for ten years before submitting it to be published. You can find the poem on the internet if you google The Fish Bishop.

    Elizabeth Bishop caught an old big fish.
    Or was it just a big old fish?
    She took an oily rainbow as a sign to let it go
    and die, instead of die and let it lie.

    Elizabeth Bishop caught a big old poem.
    But it became an old big poem.
    Ten years she took to reel it in
    before she let it go and swim.

      Wow ten years to achieve perfection. I didn't know people actually could reach perfection. It was probably her point of view to make this the most perfect poem she could ever write. Still, i think she wasn't content with it and so she kept rebuilding it and changing the patterns until she finally found what her mind has been looking for.

    I think your play of words was interesting, maybe not really my stlye to judge the excellence of this piece but still, i believe you've highlighted something that was of your interest and turned it into a poem of your own. I'm thankful you haven't taken ten years to complete this one....lol

    Still, nicely written.
    Take care....
