"There is almost nothing as jubilant as a crowd of chrysanthemums."
C.E. Hollis

Like happy faces in the bleachers
Faces bright—ready waiting for the game
Waiting for the players to run out onto the field
The anthem to be sung
Waiting for the excitement to begin 
Under the stadium lights 
One fall Friday evening;
Yellow chrysanthemums stand on tiptoes
Straining stretching toward the sound.
