The Olympian Kiss.
They carry it high, these runners, their arms up,
in a dance of delight, zig-zag from side to side,
under the watchful eyes of the Olympicians.
Every mile is a triumph, hard won, each step
counted towards the end of the line, where
the flame lights the beacon for sport.
All the towns and cities are the same; united
in answer, a light in each heart, a hope that
says, "It could be me, taking part, it could be
my brother, or son, or daughter or next door neighbour!"
In every place a community figure, a spark of originality.
We are taking the strain, developing the fame....
of the new age Olympian. Five rings to guide them,
five aims to touch, the gold medals a dream-catcher
for all to reach. Light the beacon with a kiss,
and stand back.... The Uk's not finished, not yet!
