The Teacher of the Fishermen

you can give a man a fish
or teach a man to fish
but you cannot teach
a man to teach

the fisherman who first 
shared the magic 
of the line 
lured the fish
another watched 
then tried  
taught herself 
tied the knot
set the hook

then she taught
her son to fish
a daughter watched
then tried

the brother learned to fish
the daughter became 
the teacher of the fishermen
who would learn 
for a lifetime
