Partie à la Pêche (Gone Fishin’)

fishing

This is a poem I wrote over 20 years ago while I was studying French at a university in Belgium.  I came across it the other day when I was organizing my office.  I was surprised because I thought I’d lost it, which makes me wish I had kept more of my writings from when I was younger.  Somehow, things just got lost along this crazy journey we call life.

Sigh.

Oh well, here it is:

Partie à la Pêche

Partie à la pêche.

Reviendrai demain.

J’ai pris,

Mes engins de pêche.

J’ai pris,

Mon manteau et mon chapeau.

Dans le frigo,

Je t’ai laissé,

Un petit quelque chose a manger.

Et je t’ai laissé,

La maison and les enfants à soigner,

Les facteur à payer,

Le chien à nourrir,

Et tous mes inquiètudes.

Salut!

Partie à la pêche.

Reviendrai demain.

Translation:

Gone Fishin’

Gone fishin’.

Be back tomorrow.

I took,

My fishing gear.

I took,

My coat and my hat.

In the fridge,

I left you,

A little something to eat.

And I left you,

The house and the kids to tend,

The bills to pay,

The dog to feed,

And all my worries.

See ya!

Gone fishin’.

Be back tomorrow.

Happy Reading!

Kevin Weinberg on Author Bullying

I’m sharing this with my readers because I want to show support for Kevin’s message here.  He’s just like me, very much against author bullying.

Warning: if you are sensitive to colorful language, then don’t watch.  Kevin feels strongly about this subject and thus the expletives he throws into his words.  :)

 

Happy Viewing!
