Learning through riding

11 May 2010 § 1 Comment

The bicycle is a natural teacher,
Demonstrating the great laws –
Motion, friction, thermodynamics,
Inertia, force, acceleration, gravity –
In every climb, turn and wobble.

It makes me go out to play
Even when it’s raining,
Sets tests and stern examinations,
Marks harshly, and insists
I could do better.

But there are days when it comes over
All end-of-termish,
Turns a blind eye to my coasting
Beneath a benevolent sun,
Gently reminding me of the importance

Of balance.
