Across the field
And through the trees
The snow so deep
It's past the knees
Skates hung over
A hunched right shoulder
Hockey stick a
Hiking staff, trudging
Through the dead dry
Rushes, pushed aside
To make a path, and
Now the pond
All frozen smooth
The snows' been cleared
And piled up quick
To mark the outline
Of a Hockey rink
Skates laced up
Sides are chosen,
We'll skate and play
Our faces frozen
This game will last
Till the sun goes down
Then all together
It's Homeward bound
To eat then bed
And all the time
Tell Mom and Dad
About the game, and
Tonight in sleep we'll
Dream again of the Habs
The Wings and Maple Leafs.

I don't know what evoked that idea for a hockey poem but it is what hubby lived through his childhood as a young boy and though he enjoyed very much to play outside with his friends he was also a hockey player in a league as a teen...he still enjoys to go on the ice and bring his hockey stick with him to practice some shots and if there happen to be some kids playing; well he just joins in the fun with them.

Thank you sharing it for it reminded me of the stories and the game I attended to see my champion in action while he was still a player in the league.
