Their Flocks and Their Wings

When the seas are calm, and the skies are blue,
He sets out to sail where the fishes live.
He brings his net for it’s his precious tool;
Sailing far from home, and out in the sea.
In the middle, he throws his wide, strong net.
It flies in the air in measures not set.

It dives into sea as flocks of birds fly.
He watches them fade in the horizon.
They have their flocks and their wings to fly high.
He has his net, and, each day, he works on,
Fishing to sell fishes to the city
To help his son through university.
