National Poetry Day:

I used to reminisce and ponder

Of playing netball in the sun, rain & the snow

No other sport had I been so fonder

Google Ad Manager – MPU – In Article

Very often I wished and said, you know

I would love to play netball again


Of course it was so long ago, I would sigh

I just did not know what to do

Far, far too late was the cry

And I feared that was, so very true

I would love to play netball again


But then one day by pure chance

Facebook answered my prayer

I almost did a happy dance

Walking Netball it did share

I might be able to play netball again


Welcomed by Mary & Pauline

Derby Velodrome was the place

Both of ladies so cheery and keen

My dream came true, a smile upon my face

I AM playing netball again


Lots of new friends, it’s just the best

There’s loads of laughter and oodles of fun

I feel so thankful and so blessed

We are all so eager and try not to run

I LOVE playing netball again
