A gentle game

Hot summer haze,
play several days.
Fluffy clouds billow,
leather on willow.
Fifth day it pours,
call it a draw.
Pick up the wickets,
end of the cricket.

  1. 😂😂 Aussie singer (mainly for kids) John Williamson has a song about wanting to play cricket like Alan Border. In it there’s a line “four victories to nil. Woulda been six. But the poms wouldn’t play in the rain”. Because of that your poem made me chuckle. 😂
