Wave After Wave

Wave After Wave

a poem by Jack Wagner


Sweat dripping down my face

Getting into to position

Everybody lined up.


Ready. Set. Swim!

Dive deep into the blue

Arms waving up and down,

Splashing water like a fountain.


Almost to the wall

You made, now switch positions

Work hard swim hard

Running out of oxygen.


Finished first

Crowd cheering loudly 

Big golden trophy 

I feel like a winner.
