Oh! To be on the tee again,
As part of a merry band,
To hit the ball,
Further than my eyes can see and not hear it land!
Oh! To be the on the fairway,
Not in the unkempt rough,
To find the ball on a perfect lie,
And not my next shot duff!
Oh! To be on the green again,
With a putter in my grip,
And use a familiar coaching phrase,
When my putt teeters on cup’s lip!
Oh! To be in the bar again,
And enjoy the familiar sound,
Of members not discussing golf,
But whose turn it is to buy the next convivial round!
Oh! To enjoy the day,
When lockdown finally ends
And days upon the golf course
Spent in the company of good friends!
Missing the golf and banter as I hope you can deduce from my emails?
