At the 2018 General Federation of Women’s Clubs convention, Z Club member

Maxine McWhorter-Ungerbuehler was awarded 1st place in the member poetry category for her poem titled "Fishin'

       

Today, I found myself wishin’
I could play hookey and go fishin’
Feel the mud ooze ‘tween my toes
sittin’ on the bank where the marsh grass grows
Spottin’ fish as they jump in the brook
spearin’ a worm on my bent pin hook

I see me restin’ my pole on the ground

just layin’ back with my head on my hound

watchin’ that ole pole til I see it bend

then givin’ the fish on it a fight to the end

With threats from Mom, I daren’t cut and go fishin’

so, I’m sittin’ in school and I’m only wishin’

FISHIN’

By Maxine McWhorter Ungerbuehler
