Ode to Swimming 5/5 (4)

Oh swimming,
For you I’m trimming
Down my free time
Because you require the dedication of a lifetime.

A friend’s party may await,
But for you I will be late.

I kick and pull,
And swallow many a mouthful
Of your crystal blue flowing wool.

If I pause for just one day,
You chase me ‘cause
Without you, I’m astray

You take much dedication
To travel across the nation
And compete
To attempt an amazing feat.

So thank you, swimming,
You are my light
Without you, I’m missing
A part of me and it doesn’t feel right.
