Sports Poems

Poems about Sports

Sports are complex in that they are a way to escape our lives as well as a way to look at our lives in a clearer way. In the world of sports the line of victory and defeat is quite clear. There is no question of what team you are on or what position you play within the team. These things are not always clear in real life. Escaping to the world of sports is an opportunity to think about these questions in our own lives.

    Poem About Soccer

    As I stand on that muddy grass field,
    The roar of the cheering crowds

    • By Dj Tanner

    Football Sports Poem

    What's going through your mind when you're running up the side, only 1 man to beat?
    When he runs fast you'll run faster, can he take the heat?
    What's going through your mind when the X is open for the 40 yard touchdown pass?
    He catches the ball, and you hope this moment will always last.

  7. Casey At The Bat

    The outlook wasn't brilliant for the Mudville nine that day;
    The score stood four to two, with but one inning more to play,
    And then when Cooney died at first, and Barrows did the same,
    A pall-like silence fell upon the patrons of the game.
