Extreme low water at Barrows falls on the Piscataquis River in Monson.
Taken in Monson, Piscataquis County Maine.
In Monson, by the bridge at Barrow's Falls,
I once took one full day to catch one trout
which having caught, I then released again -
alone it was to small to make a meal,
or even an hors d'oeuvre. Nor did I then
nor yet regret the day so spent as lost
or count what else I might have done as cost.
But all that night, I dreamt of monster trout
that splashed and played and danced upon my line,
and bade me come and be a fish like them;
dive in the water; fully enter in
to piscine life beneath the rushing stream
and let the dreamer now become the bream!
