A Masters' Stroke

This is not about golf and the professionals who play
Actually it's about beauty and weather and Georgia
As a young player it was my ambition to visit Augusta
during the week of The Masters - I never did make it
But Sunday April 12-09 on a beautiful Easter everything
went right except the best players who fell apart finally
Once again the Nation and the world saw my state
at its very best and I was proud indeed of the weather
the gorgeous flowers the dogwoods blooming and
the song birds of early spring who sang their hearts out
The combination of scenery - bird songs and golf drama
was a show Barnum and Bailey never learned about
In a slow-to-arrive spring CBS fed beauty and song
to a warmth starved land of too much snow and water
By the end of the four day classic my fellow Georgians
and I were equally proud as was the golfer who won a
green jacket and silver trophy but who will remember
In summary it was disjointed golf being played at a
a most satisfying location shared by millions of viewers

F William Broome April 2009

You are right about too much water, as in NJ, just as every April does, it rains every other day almost...its been raining here since Monday night & not even my dog wants to go out...gonna have to train him in the fine art of using the bathroom, someday...sounds so beautiful where you live, though the summer heat would put me off...take care, Bill...Ed
