New Zealand Field Dairy
By Cam Chioffi

Here my feet are set in stone,
A timeless river, a permanent home,
Gathered here for love of trout,
Take a cast I do not doubt.


Before we cast we all must pray,
To see the river one more day,
Bless these waters, our playing field,
In hopes that soon a trout may yield.


Hearts beat fast with keen set eyes,
Around the bend a trout may rise,
If she does I’ll take a cast,
With any luck the fly won’t last.


May our eyes be sharp, our minds the same,
Our hearts all full, with love for game,
Here my feet are set in stone,
Bless these waters, bless my home.
