Tennis Whites

There was a time when tennis players
Had to dress in white.
Appearing on the court in colors
Wouldn’t have been right.

But rules have changed and now we see
A medley of attire.
In fact, to be a fashion plate
Some players do aspire.

Both men and women choose to wear
Ensembles bright and bold.
A few stroll out in outfits
Rather shocking to behold.

Though some may yearn for former times
When whites were de rigueur,
To me, the freedom from those rules
Improves the court’s décor.

    Polo shirts and shorts and skorts are all that really matter. Just play the game and have some fun and you should not get fatter. :)

    Ilene you truly amaze me. You have such a wonderful way with words. I learned a new word today "de rigueur" I've never encountered this word before. Had to look it up in the dictionary. I wish writing poems were as easy for me as they seem to be for you. You have a very special gift and I'm just glad I can enjoy the fruits of your labor by reading these gems. Thank you for sharing.
