Umpiring A Competition...... [Poem By Request; Kinda Short; Poem Competition Umpires]


Elyas does progress through competition so well.
Gratitude, for the four umpires, in him does swell.
Doctors Nejati and Rang Avar are the names of two.
And two other nice humans with a good world view.
Elyas was impressed with their humanity concern.
From each other I'm sure they all can more learn.

Dr. Nejati kindly posed some questions to answer.
I bet Elyas handled them like a comfortable dancer.
It would be nice if all contestants could be 'the winner'.
But not winning is not as bad as being a sinner.

I send good luck wishes to my friend Elyas in Iran,
And to the Umpires for doing.....whatever they can.

    good poem for the umpires! ! ....so melodious and perfect rhymes!
    pointing to an important subject that sometimes we forget :
    It would be nice if all contestants could be 'the winner'.
    But not winning is not as bad as being a sinner.

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.
