The Kentucky Derby (Quatrains)


What a glorious day it is today,
As people of all ages are having fun,
Because the Kentucky Derby race,
Is taking place till the day is done.

You can really see all around the,
Throughbred beautiful horses, too,
That will be competing for the,
grand prize that they'll give today.

There are very large crowds everywhere, and,
Folks are laughing and making bets to,
For their favorite horses and everywhere, and,
You can feel their excitement mounting too.

You can see the jockeys walking around,
Displaying proudly all their best colors and silks too.
They all seem to be, more than ready for this race,
While taking last notes here and there to make things okay today.

Well, this wonderful race is about to start any moment now.
The horses are being prepared in every way, and that's true,
As they're all looking their very best from head to hoofs,
The winner will receive a very beautiful cup and great honors, too.

So many bets that are at stake here for so many today,
People are very excited, rushing all over the place to,
As the horses and their jockeys are getting ready now,
The jockeys are looking so proud atop the horses they'll ride, too.

The horses and jockeys are now set for this much awaited race,
They're all in line and in their position to start anytime to,
But it will take a long time for sure for this race to be over,
But already it looks like 'Blind Beauty' is about to make history today.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
