Coach's Poem

A Poem of Appreciation for all chess coaches everywhere:

Chess Coach Poem

Here we begin a boisterous day,

With a team full of students
leading the way.

A pawn, a rook, and bishop too,

Stalemates and wins is what we aim to do!

With chess sets, pencils, and note pads in tow,

Each round gives us hope,

As we add the top four.

Achievements, goals, and expectations are met,

This is a great ride we will not soon forget!

As our team goes on in keeping the pace,

We will overcome and finish this race!

Author:  L. M. Gonzales (1/21/2017)

Many thanks to Lisa, my first chess sponsor, for this poem!
