Sports is where a person can compete with oneself, and with others, with integrity and safety.
Sports is where a person can learn a great deal about themselves doing something they love.
It's rare that integrity and fun can be found in one activity, but sports is at its best when combining the two.
Nearly twenty years of poetry writing is exhibited in the current collection of sports poems in 101 Sports Poems.
Many of the sports experiences expressed by these poems are the result of direct experiences by the author, Felipe Adan Lerma. Now older, or as Adan puts it, "a young senior," Adan narrates considerable commentary in the deluxe editions how the poems came to be written. Whether for the casual, or initial listener the poems offers a straight-through listening enjoyment of all the various sports represented.
Some poetry is humorous, while others are seriously presented. After many decades of layman participatory sports, formally and informally, a wide gamut of feelings are found.
The list of sports poem topics includes, among many others, baseball, dance, horse riding, football, coaching, bicycling, yoga, soccer, and volleyball. Thank you for considering 101 Sports Poems for your listening enjoyment.
