The Encounter – a poem by Chris Bennett

The Encounter

I was standing on the seashore
Looking out to sea,
When I saw a fishy
A-looking back at me.
“Hello little fish,” I said,
“How do you do?”
The fish said,
“I am very well, and how are you?”
I shouted,
“Well I never…
A fishy that can talk!”
“That’s nothing,”
Said the fishy,
“Shall we go for a walk?”


Chris Bennett, October 2015
