A Sport Sonnet

By Rachel S., Brooklyn, NY

Hot weather makes practices exhaust me.
Stressful drills leave teams down and sorrowful.
During rest, we get shade under a tree,
Afterwards we all feel more powerful.

As games start, player's energy released.
The coaches encouraged and reassured.
Score becomes tied and needs to be increased,
Another point is scored and win secured.

Feelings of joy and triumph fill the court.
The other team is sad and defeated.
We celebrate this great, wonderful sport.
If all goes right, it shall be repeated.

Through hard work and dedication the game is won.
This phenomenal sport is very fun.

So true that every generation is considered lazy by their elders.

a court is mentioned, teams are also mentioned, "another point is scored" yet basket ball is scored in two points per basket, and practices are out side, posibly vollyball or tennis, mabey badmittn, sory about spelling.
