Early arrival's a pre-requisite,
And parking in the ground's a real bonus,
And lugging chairs (they're not exactly light),
While midday sunspills light and heat upon us.
Hats and sunblock, sandwiches and cider;
Having the perfect view, no heads between;
Behind the picket - just; an insider
Fans in the bleachers crowded looking keen.
And so we sit and wait and eat and drink,
And watch the late ariivers seeking seats,
And while the teams warm up, I lounge and think;
The voice is right that in my head repeats-
'The first balls bowled so close, so clear, teach us
Cricket's best NOT sitting in the bleachers.'
Yes, finally a blog post from me.
