Olympians



Eyes and expectations
have turned
toward the models
of strength and precision,
endurance and vision.
Inspiring, prompting,
Olympians breathe
the hopes of people and nations.
Defying division,
they build invisible bridges
of unity, friendship and love,
soaring and thrilling,
Olympians carry
the  dream and   freedom to all.
