On Dasher


Standing high above the world upon
the impeccable ice-capped hilltop,
with the teary soul's gates in awe, minty mist
swirling, snot-factory working
overtime, wheezing steamships,
Nervous Nancy's and scaredy-cat Scotty's -
further necessary preparations undergone.
With a well-advised delectable run up -
sudden blazing - whooshing downhill -
we, brave-hearted individuals - some in pairs or triplets -
battling one another fiercely;
each dasher, desiring to be the outright victor
in this all-day competition.
Swerving, flying overhead, and/or crashing
in continuum until dusk; in hope to obtain the cup.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
