Salute To Olympic Players 1996 - Poem by Annie Mae Gore

Glory comes among us
From B.C. into A.D.
As you continue a tradition
Conceived in ancient myth.
Endure well
For whatever deity or deities you seek to please
As Atlanta becomes Olympia.
You add decency and excellence
To our civilization
O peaceful notion
In a strife torn world:
"Sweet Olympic competition is not war!
