Beyond the clouds, beside a pool, an angel bides his time,

So patient, pure and peaceful, he casts afar his line

Baited with his love, enough for every one,

He simply waits, waits and smiles beneath the endless sun.

It's not the ones he catches - for these shall know his love,

But those who slip away, not knowing that above

Another world is waiting; those who seek shall find

And sit beside this fisher man, and know true peace of mind.
Cheers.

Nursie
