 Elsie`s Poetry



Very much to my dismay
I received a text today,
"Elsie the netball has to fold"
Was the sad news I was told.

Our sports centre has closed
This is what she disclosed,
So our league will be no more
Now my heart is on the floor.

Wednesday was netball night
Sick or not I`d be there alright,
I wouldn`t leave my team short
I just really love this sport.


29 years I`ve played this game
And added trophies to my name,
I`ve coached teams and umpired too
Now what in heaven am I going to do?

My heart is heavy that`s for sure
As I`ll not wear my kit anymore,
Part of my life has been taken away
I`m extremely sad I have to say.

Wednesday nights won`t be the same
Not without my beloved game,
I feel I`ve been robbed of a friend
I just can`t believe this is the end!
