Oh Hello Again (Poem)

Oh hello again small fish in the pond,

I haven’t see you in ages, I thought you had gone.

But I am glad to see that in this pond you still swim.

The boy climbed in the pond and the fish swam to him.

Oh hello there boy, it has been quite awhile.

Since I’ve seen you by the pond with that soft smile.

Would you like to know a secret, a secret of fish?

We have the power to grant a human only one wish.

Since I like you so, my wish is for you,

take your time thinking, and don’t waste it whatever you do.

The boy paused a moment and smiled as he said,

I want to be a fish free in the water, with the water as my bed.

The fish nodded slightly and closed his eyes,

the boy had become a fish, and to the fish’s surprise-

he had become a boy, the transfer complete.

The boy waved at the fish, and walked away on his new feet.
