Salmon Poems

These poems were written to the salmon by the school children who had raised them. Many were shared on the shore as the salmon swam off:

Their scales shimmer bright

First the river then the sea

Brightly colored orange

Christina

Shiny silver scales

Amongst your darting tail fin

Beautifully you swim

Ellie

I watched you grow up

and now you’re freedom is near

Goodbye my fish friend

Lily

Beautiful salmon

listen close in the forest

Salmon swim, swim, swim

Samantha

Salmon swim softly

Peaceful, quiet and hungry

Patient to find prey

Sequoia

Salmon we watch grow

Swim up the stream now, freedom

See you soon, small friend
