Many of the sports experiences expressed by these poems are the result of direct experiences by the author, Felipe Adan Lerma. Now older, or as Adan puts it, “a young senior,” Adan narrates considerable commentary in the deluxe editions how the poems came to be written.
For the casual, or more serious reader, “The Poems” edition offers a straight-through reading enjoyment of all the various sports represented.
Some poetry is humorous, while others are seriously presented. After many decades of layman participatory sports, formally and informally, a wide gamut of feelings are found.
The list of sports poem topics includes, among many others, baseball, dance, horse riding, football, coaching, and volleyball.
Please read through the fully linked index for the complete list of sports topics and the titles within those topics.
A special section entitled “Singles” represents poems of which there is only one for that category. Major sports interests are included in this category, including basketball and gymnast.
The selection of poems, says Adan, smiling, "is a summary to-date, of all the wonderful sports I've enjoyed, as a child, a teen in school, as a young adult, and now, as what my wife and I like to call ourselves, young seniors."
