Dame Carp

I am leaping after flies when I land hard on the earth. I lie in the grass, gasping for air. Then two hands slide underneath me and I am raised up. I am sure that I will be eaten!

But no, I am gently lowered into the cool, refreshing water. I sink to the bottom of the river. Ahhhh.... I can breathe again! Boldly, I swim to the bank to thank the charming man for his kindness. "I will repay you," I tell him. We will meet again.
