A long Summer gives way to Fall
The Sun grows dimmer and the leaves fall.
A young boy awakens with joy in his eye
A new season of football is standing idly bye.
The grass is green and the field is unmuddied
The boy eats in a hurry.
The air grows warmer and the jerseys arrive unbloodied
The boy arrives at the field with not a worry.
The team trickles into the locker room
A game played for generations honors it’s history.
Pads are put on, helmets are placed on heads and cleats are tightened.
The boy grows anxious; his youthful enthusiasm shines brighter than the Sun.
The coach enters the locker room and gives a speech.
The team is fired up and the boy beams in anticipation.
The team bursts through the door, ready for battle
And ready for a new season of life.
