Treasure Island

E.A. England

(beverly hills)

Volleyball


set it up to spike it down
dig it, then repeat
blockers up and coverage close
talk loud and move your feet

give it everything you have
don't just play the game
strive to beat the other teams
make them fear your name

points rack up and tension builds
we all know what's at stake
skill and heart and desire to win
aren't things that you can fake

some are short and some are tall
we come in different sizes
that doesn't change the way that we
wear our floor burns like prizes

any game that we must play
with worthy competition
we face the team across the net
with courage and ambition

if every person does their best
and gives it what they can
work has a knack for paying off
and winning is the plan

so dig it up and load it up
send it back once more
aiming for a certain spot,
a place to hit the floor

shifting, diving, calling out,
don't be afraid to fall
it's this sport that you should try
we call it volleyball

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
