Ode To Rugby League
Declan Brown, Grade 5, Currumbin State School
The ball, the goal, the field, the boots.
The crowd screaming at you, no one boos.
The sound of studs digging.
The talk of the clock.
The pass of the ball.
As time fades away, excitement expands.
The crowd on their feet as the last try is scored.
The blow of the whistle that ends it all.
At the end of the game hands are shook.
And the winners look back at the game they took.
