The Sweet Workout

mens-eight26 November 2016

Their strokes were timed
to be deliberately slow,
then lifted clear of the water
and held, mid-air,
the men leaning backwards,
stretched to the limit,
in aerodynamic prowess,
the shell gliding on its own
until the blades, again,
engaged the river,
this repeated in sweet
succession.
