The Cricket Matches of August

The thin girl and her piebald friend
measured the boundary breezes
for exactly one hour

They offered their findings
to both clubs in turn
each declined

noting that the wind has many realities



On the 11th of August 2012 both Theale and Sulhamstead & Ufton Cricket Clubs played home fixtures at their respective grounds. The weather was bright and warm but there was a noticeable breeze that persisted all day.
