Olympiad-2012 - Poem by Joseph Anderson

To London town they came to play
And this they did, day after day;
Envisioned with their storied past,
The stage was set for glories vast.

They came from near, they came from far,
They came to play and raise the bar
And this they did, with records set
And memories they'll ne'er forget

The crowds were huge, the spirits light,
The weather never sent a blight; ,
No terrorism reared it's head,
'Twas peace and joy and cheer instead.

Through glories tall and visions bold
Olde England surely won the gold.
