Why… Do I want to try To be the official scribe As the cyclists pedal furiously Across the hills? Because… Through the course… I’d able to describe All I’d experience, and see. The wheres, the whens, the hows, and the whys… The thrills, the chills, the spills As the bikers sail across the Blue Mountains…trying adventure for size… Take some pictures: videos, too! I could see their dreams With my eyes, and write How they climbed slopes and forded streams; How they exchanged anecdotes, Danced together, sang some notes…. I’d share their points of view; Record their moods, both heavy and light Every little incident; The pedal that fell off, the wheel that bent: The final push, the incredible thrill, Of conquering distance with one’s will…. Click their faces, as they passed The victorious finishing line at last… Have, at the end, a memorable journal Of the cyclists’ efforts diurnal. I want to be the Official Blogger(if you please) Of the 2009 Tour of the Nilgiris!
