Special bench for Contest

They walk with their sticks
some an ungainly gait
scarves around their necks
caps upon their heads
Heading for the same place
to sit and chew the facts
talking of the old days
when young and good at sport
A special bench in the park
which the winter sun keeps warm
A few men will meet to chat
their memories ever young
Talk about  their rugby days
of playing for their team
having to sit and wait
to be called from bench to field

    This is a very clever double take on those two times in life both with benches and maybe even alludes to waiting to be called to heaven? Love what this inspired for you!

    This is a wonderful and warm write my friend! I loved the fact that you painted old men sitting and talking about their memories of days when they were young, that is exactly what they do! I even do that and I'm not that old, ok maybe a little! I really enjoyed reading this delightful poem this morning! What a brilliant piece, Great Work!!
