A bouncing ball,
the thrill of the court,
the skill,
the speed,
the dodging,
the darting about,
the running,
the excited shouts,
yes, basketball it is quite an art,
quite an art for the tall,
those athletic men and women,
who have no trouble to leap so high,
as if polevaulters with invisible poles that send them flying through the air,
apparently without any trouble at all,
yes, the thrill of the court,
what a great place it is to be for shorter people who can barely leap at all.
