Barrows Falls

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!
