Happy Hobby



You are my philharmonic,
an opus symphony.
You are my country music, a cowboy melody.
You are my luring Venus,
a symbol of romance.
You are my corps de ballet, a company of dance.
You are my Olympiad,
a torch holding the flames.
You are my sporting event, an ultimate in games.
You are my merry-go-round,
a ride on painted horse.
You are my roller coaster, an undulating force.
You are my restitution,
a healthy change of pace.
You are my intermission, a novel breathing space.
You are my happy hobby,
a concoction for thirst.
You are my grand diversion, a recreation burst.
