A MAPLE LEAFS SONNET Young children idolizing their hockey heroes Blue and white clad battling night in, night out Johnny and Terry keeping opponents to zero Teeder, the Chief and Sittler will lead the rout At 60 Carlton sits the holy grail Shrining a past full of glory and pride With Wendel came a player tough as nails Behind the net he and Bruce Bell did collide Borje and Mats, the Leafs had lots of Swede No cups, but in the Hall they’ll be enshrined Sacks of cash, Ballard was full of greed By thirteen cup wins, this team is defined We hold the Leafs in the highest esteem We are all blue and white, when we dare dream I wrote this sonnet for my grade 11 English poetry assignment, it got me a 93. My creative mind.
