What is it like to be a student athlete? Basketballer, runner, swimmer, cyclist, gymnast, pitcher, wrestler, football, tennis or lacrosse player? And what is it like to balance school, practice, work, family life, love, and all that competing? What is it like for the heart, the mind, and the body? What is it like for the spirit?Rhyme & Rhythm: Poems for Student Athletes captures through exquisite and heart-felt poetry the lives, pains, sufferings, revelations, grit, and triumphs of the student athlete. On the track, on the diamond, on the court, in the home, on the street, in the ring, and through all walks of life. More than forty renown poets have come together to illustrate the tightrope walk, the personal challenges, and the self-discovery of this amazing and often overlooked group of people. Dive in and discover the poetic life, both the rhyme and the rhythm, of the student athlete.
