twas the night before trout season

Twas the night before trout season, and all through the houses
the fishermen finished working and scurried like mouses.

The fishing vests hung by the tackle boxes with care
in hopes that the pretty little trout soon would be theirs.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds
while the knitter wove in ends and chuckled at the Big Silly she had wed.

With a Eucalan soak and blocked to a perfect fit,
the Terror Fish turned out to be a super cool knit.

(Whew, you guys, making up this highbrow ;-) poetry stuff is hard! Okay, so let's just cut to the end.)

He sprang to his Jeep, to his buddies gave a whistle
and away they all blew like a trout-guided missile.

But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
Happy Fishing to all, and to all a good bite!

Your poetry and sweater both came out great!!

I too am married to a silly and wouldn't have it any other way. Life is just more fun. Plus, the knitting is more interesting. My man will wear lace in his socks!!
