Jumping Jack

Jumping Jack the goldfish lives in my fish pond
He is golden and sleek with a swift turn of speed.
When I turn my water pump on,
the water starts gushing and bubbling out,
He is there in a flash, splashing, leaping and rushing about.
Up in the air at times he hangs, for a second suspended
Then down with a splash into the dark depths,
quickly vanishing, his great jumps ended.
