Youth Football

Youth Football

(10/8 Meter)

.

.
I coach local age 9 youth football team.

We practice on three days a week

Then Saturday, of victory they dream,

And parent’s praises they all seek.

.
They often get distracted and confused,

Frequently forget the snap count,

The quarterback called on play number used.

Still, youthful joy is tantamount.

.
They dash about upon the field of play,

Uniforms shining in the sun,

All running around, each and every way,

Until their game is lost or won.

.
Yet through the chaos of it all,

They learn to play the game, football.

.

Author Notes

The poem says it all. I’ll add a picture of them later. We won today’s game 48 to 0. But lost the first game last week 28 to 14.


This poem is just simple Quatrains with a 10/8 meter and closing 8 syllable rhyming couplets.
