A Club Member’s Poem

A club member has been very kind and written us a little poem about swimming!

She swims in the lane next to me
The mermaid of mine
No one sees, no one knows
The image of her body
The waves of the water is all they see.

As I swim to the rhythm of the stroke
The water in my eyes, the movement of the feet
As I glide through the water
She seems to be there next to me
Guiding my moves making sure I’m safe
‘Til I get home and the dream disappears.

And I wonder if she will meet me again next week
To make sure that I swim safely.
