Voices on the Wind
Game Well Played
by Andrea Williams Reed
The field was set in autumnís
Vibrant golds and reds
Novemberís crisp air and gentle breezes
Wrapping around the gathering like a soft quilt,
Along with swirling ribbons of leaves
Ball in the red zone.
After a sweep,
Another play complete.
Playerís final leap
Crossed the goal line.
Time called, ninety-fourth
Announcements placed in the paper
Family and friends gather for celebration,
Food and sharing stories and testimonials of
A life well lived and remembered
Another MVP drafted in the final round
Heavenís roll call added a new
Name to the celestial team
Drafted from earthís training roster
