It is the cricket season in England now

I had thought cricket was a sport of a bygone era,
but it actually is played on many greens throughout the country
each Saturday and Sunday

It is a sport that I know absolutely nothing about,
but somehow I just love it

Men who look between the ages of 30 and 70
appear to play just for the love of the game
with few crowds or many paying attention

It appears sweet and pure to me,
in its quiet flow

Like gentle background music
to a perfect day
