Middletown Poems

End of the Season

Their only win of the season
led to a game under the lights.
They ran and kicked but in the end
they lost again that night.

We gathered afterwards on the bench
where all twelve of them could sit.
They spoke of the fun they had
and how much it would be missed.

The playoff game in latest October
was played in an early November chill.
Even in all the excitement
the weather dampened the thrill.

A coach had words to say
on how the kids could better play,
but the last word went to the girl not too old
to say at last, "It is cold!"
