Derby Day – poem

Derby Day

 Derby Day was here,

The Thoroughbred in bloom,

The hopes and dreams of many men

Were shown this afternoon.


If you were in the Queen’s Stand,

Or out there on the Downs,

Or riding in the funfair,

The magic came around.


The scene could run forever,

As only the players change,

You make a bet, they shout “They’re off”,

You turn another page.
