Everybody’s sense of recreation
differs slightly, but some have a common aim.
In wind and water they find exultation
and meet the challenge, never quite the same.
When others stay indoors for fear of storm
they dare to fight it, using its sheer strength
to push them, being able to perform
the wildest jumps in height as well as length.
Thus recreation turns out quite dynamic
when people can deliberately compete.
But once a pastime will become pandemic
it might no longer leisure standards meet.
