A Cricketer And A Poet

It is a long inning
Slowly and patiently
Sometimes in hasty
One by one
Collected poems
By the bat of thought

A cricketer
At the edge of the century
Of runs and points
Is pushed to the victory
By cheers

I wrote and got
Two centuries
Inside my playground
Cheers and hugs
From my heart
To my mind
I celebrated
Not out inning
No one who sleeps knows

Great attempt Udaya. You seem to be doing fine. You can score more centuries. Please keep batting. Night is still young. Good luck! Nice poem too.
