ATHLETE

With skill and form and flexile-functioned lineFlung on our sight, he dares us to excel.To emulate his ardent, deft design.To make of thought or act a stroke played well,To govern conduct like a golfer's game.To rally business with a tennis verve,for home, for school, for conference to claimThe batter's timing or the rower's curve.

But far above the sportsmanship of youth.Man must be poised in Mind's forever-primeTo fling the candid strategy of truth.To vault the measured barriers of time.To see, for each imperative advance,God's power prepare each stroke from perfect stance.
