Citius, Altius, Fortius - Poem by Jane Shewmaker Hale

Swifts rays of sun. a flame has
begun
traveling from Olympia, Athens, to
L.A.
High hopes, famous names, Competitive
games
are enroute to Atlanta, Georgia
USA
10,000 strong, torch bearers race
along
kilometer heroes, women, children, and
men.
Cheering crowds wait for athletes to tempt
fate
The Centennial flame blazes . . . Let the Games
begin
