Diving - Poem by Timothy Venard

Lift up your arm and grab the next bar
Pull yourself up, put your foot on the other bar
Climb the ladder
To the top
To the very top
Up high
Up so high
So very very high.
Now jump.
Leap into the air
For one split second...
That feels like for ever
You fly,
And you fly gracefully
And beautifully

Then you fall
So fast
So very very fast
Fear it
Enjoy it
Whatever you do,
It astounds you.

You plunge
Strait in, ,
Into the cold
Into the wet.
Water engulfs you.

As you swim to the surface
You climb out.
And climb up the ladder
Ready to dive again
