Chess is an intellectual game
It's not  at once you can so easily play
To practice and practice helps the same
Many a loss will be indulged  as long as you can stay

Ladies and opponents of wealth are usually at the table
for the poor must be at work so hard
In the garden or when it rains playing in a stable
the game will always challenge the bard

As youth disappears you are filled with cunning
sitting at chair and table for hours fully entrapped
To play outside with the soft wind sunning
Once you play so long you'll be trapped

As a child or woman is the time to start
for chess my ladies is a work of art.
