Game Rhymes

Four-Square
by Roger W Hancock


Four squares, four players,
bouncing ball square to square.
Line of children wait their turn,
wait their turn, their turn to share.
Player who misses ball is out,
next in line steps in to share.
Bouncing ball player to player,
four players playing four-square.

Ball that is tethered to a pole,
around the pole a circle write.
Two players in half a circle,
hits the ball past other player.
Other player must stop the ball,

Victory is when rope wound tight,
when the ball up tight to pole.

Checkers

Red, black checks across the board,
two players ready set begin.
Red, black chips placed on the board.
first player makes his move.
Chips progress across the board,
Red chips passing black.

black chip jumps a red.
Reaching other side of board,
black chip is crowned as king.
Now fight back across the board,
red chips captured, you’re the king.

Hide and Seek
by Roger W Hancock


Hide and seek around the park,
to find the special hiding place.
“1, 2, 3,” behind a tree,
scampering here and there.
“4, 5, 6,” too many sticks,
must seek another place to hide.
“7, 8, 9,” next seeker turn, be mine,
so I find a tree or bush to hide.
“10 !” the seeker calls out loud!
now begins the hunt, one by one.
Excitedly, quietly, waiting…
I'm found!

Game or Sport      .

Two Geocaching Rhymes       -  Geocaching - can be sporting but is certainly a game.

A real-world treasure hunt, Geocaching is a rather new game/activity where all you need is yourself access to the internet (try your library if you not have internet access) and a GPS (Global Positioning System) Device (Apps. on many cell phones) to help you find the co ordinance of a posted cache.

Treasure Cache

Cache of cache sites on a website,
use coordinance to help you sight.
Hidden treasure for your pleasure,
hunt and find in your leisure
Follow cell phone or GPS device,
to guide you to the treasure site. 

 
© 10-31-11 Roger W Hancock www.RogersRhymes.PoetPatriot.com


 
Geocaching

Geocaching is eco hunting;
urban, rural, city or suburbs.
Find the cache superbly hidden,
allowing others to see, forbidden.
Put back the prize or place another
continue on to next cache tour.
When you've got the inclination,
hide a cache near your location.

Cheerleaders are athetes even when cheerleading is not a sport.

Cheerleading
by Roger W Hancock

Cheer, cheer, backflips through the air,
Bouncing, jumping, yelling cheers.
Young women graces as doe deer,
young men buff as mighty steer.
Men toss women into the air,
women on shoulders of male peers.
Jumping, Climbing, flying cheers,
cheering acrobatics without fear.
 
© 11-17-11 Roger W Hancock www.RogersRhymes.PoetPatriot.com

Cheerleading Squad
by Roger W Hancock


Girls and boys can learn to fly,
to make the squad you must try.
Engineered exercise builds agility,
practiced routines perfectly.
Stunt dance of jumps and tumbling,
to make the squad of cheerleading.
 
© 11-17-11 Roger W Hancock www.RogersRhymes.PoetPatriot.com
Cheering
by Roger W Hancock


One cheer, two cheer, three cheer, four,
prompt the crowd to cheer some more.
Incite the crowd to a roaring  riot,
yelling, screaming, waving zealots.
Cheers to cheer the favorite team,
jumping, bouncing to make fans scream!

Sportsmanship
by Roger W Hancock


Unity theme begins a team,
Working to build team’s esteem.
Together working on sports team,
redeem the victory scheme.

www.RogersRhymes.PoetPatriot.com
Sports, Sports and Games
by Roger W Hancock


Games for children, fun not Sport,
though parents make it so.
Let the children have their fun,
learn teamwork rules, win or lose.

Games are played to pass the time,
entertain for children’s fun,
Sportsmanship within the game,
teaches fun, with a loss or win.
 
Sports are played to pass the buck,
economize an industry,
Sportsmanship within the Sport?
money pays most, within the win.

Sport is just a sport, without Caps,
until obsession grows within.
Now grown up the game is lost,
when “sport” becomes a “Sport.”

From the mound baseball tossed,
the batter’s bat is swung.

Horseshoes
by Roger W Hancock


Nailed upon the horse's feet,
race staked on four shoes;
paced hoofs will not compete,
when the horse has thrown a shoe.

Four shoes shared by players,

points earned for a ringer,
or near the stake with shoes.
