Sports Poetry. It is human nature to create and compete. Both of these are brought together in Sport. Many games began in distant eons and gradually adapted and became codified to those we know today. In this volume we celebrate, through the verse of so many well known poets, sports of all kinds. Sports for the rich sports for the poor and all manner in between. As Henry Newbolt would say ‘Play Up Play Up and Play The Game. Our collection is read by many including Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe.
