Olympic Games: London 2012

Lay the foundation of the arena with bronze,
And make the track with silver lining.
Mark the finish line with gold
And amplify the loud roar of the fans,
Cheering our golden boys and girls to victory.

Hold your breath for the 100m final,
And watch every stride of the fastest men on earth.
Be blown away by the routines of the gymnasts,
And the endurance of the marathoners.

Feel the splash of the water,
As every swimmer swims
And all rowers row,
Even as the sailors sail.

Gold, silver and bronze, we want them all,
As no effort of the competitors will be in vain.
To compete in the Olympics is not a joke,
So for those without medals,
Keep your heads high.


  1. It's true. The anguish, pain, trepidation, elation, disappointment etc that these athletes face and go through is no joke. Well done to them all

  2. I feel sorry for the likes of Mark Cavendish and Philips Idowu. Anyone that gets to compete should be proud cos that means they are better than a lot of competitors. I hope you've enjoyed watching the games :)

  3. Nice , the quality of your poetry has imrpoved since the last time I checked .
