On My Table

This is my entry for the Round Robin Challenge
Service with a smile.

Anyone for tennis? I have joined two balls,
So both of us win wherever it falls,
There is a large net that neither can see,
It doesn’t divide, but joins you to me,
Some might think this dumb it may not ring their bell,
But childlike players may hear a silent spell,
And vow to never grow seriously so old,
That their smile has died before their lives unfold.

Who will be the umpire for this fantasy game?
No record of the score would be such a shame!
Come out, come out, wherever you may be,
Hiding in pages incomprehensible to me,
I paid for your cover that is glossy and hard,
And placed you high over many a bard,
Now having seen me play everyone’s fool,
Please enrol me as jester in your school.

Astounding! I love the juxtaposition of images and concepts - the bear and the frog, the invisible net, the intriguing book title, and verse lurking beneath! Excellent!

Steven said...

Way cool. Love the cherry? wood table. I'm partial to frogs and yours is super!
