Cricket


Thats a magnificent shot
cheered the commentators
as the batsman hits the ball high
over the spectators

How was that? appealed the bowler
the umpire thinks for some seconds
while the bowler looks at him anxiously
the umpire finally raises his finger

The batsman had hit a six in the previous ball
he has lot of strength and is 6 feet tall
but the bowler is no less, he took the sweet revenge
made him out and showed him the way to the reserve bench

While the batsman was leaving
the bowler gave him a revengeful gaze
The batsman thought in his mind
'I will surely punish you the other days'

Its the beautiful sport of cricket
where you hit sixes and take wickets
some failed and some gained tremendous fame
but whatever it is, its the gentleman's game

    You are pretty good. I usually if critiquing/ bad speller here and no spell check/ anyway mention the overuse of adjectives or unecessary words. You seem to have gotten the words that are redundant or just not needed out. What I am trying to say is your poems are well written. Thank you for bringing your poetry to my attention.
