Golf On The Radio
Listen, there is golf on the radio.
Seemed hard to believe, a snag in the flow.
Unstimulated by the sport, though,
as a schoolboy, I remember I enjoyed
playing putting on the putting green
in my local park,
I changed stations, listened, for a lark.
Listen, the voice of the commentator
speaks as low as the grass
he describes in a lull in the play,
as he does the hues of the sky,
clouds as they pass,
his tone quiet as a stationary caddie,
clear as the head of a club.
After a minute, I turn off.
That is all I can take.
But there is comfort to know,
in this loud world,
there is golf on the radio.
