St Andrews Saturday


Lazy Saturday afternoon

Creeping clouds

Stretch soaring fingers

As drowsy sun

Heats buzzing crowds.


Lazy swing of drivers

Caught in slow motion

From on high

By cherry-picker cameras

Through half closed lenses.


Lazy golfers striding out

As stretching waves

Lap hot backdrop shores

Of this sandy home

Of our Glorious Game.


Lazy St Andrews Saturday

Spectators sit in queueing cars

Humming streams

Trickling the miles

Of our Celtic countryside.


Lazy third-round day

Building for Sunday passion

Of birdies and eagles

For now merely a twinkle

In a Tiger’s eye.
