An Appreciative Ode in Farewell for Mahela and Kumar

March 25, 2015

Demos

You were the mainstay of our cricket for many long years,

Enthralling  fans in Sri Lanka and across the globe

With your scintillating   batting  prowess.

The  free- flowing facile elegance

Displayed in your masterful stroke play

And the brilliant centuries and innumerable runs,

Amassed with effortless ease and grace

Earned you ,well deserved, adulatory accolades,

From a devoted constituency

Of connoisseurs of high excellence, in the Game.

You brought such fame and glory,

To this little island of ours,

That we dreaded the day,

You will hang up your boots and call it quits!

What endeared you to us,one and all ,

Were your self –effacing modesty and gentlemanly ways,

Where the glory you would bring Sri Lanka ,

Always  came first.

We Sri Lankans, stand up and salute you,

Sanga and Mahela

And Wish you both,

Success, in all your future endeavours.

You will remain, two brightly shining stars,

In our cricketing firmament,

For many, many years to come.

DEMOS, that man from Galle
