A Tribute to Katie’s Bike

A Tribute to Katie’s Bike

By David Smith August 25, 2008

A bike without a rider, as it lies on the stage;

No kick stand,

In waiting,

As an artistic page.

The mechanics of the bike,

The chain and the gear,

The pedals and seat,

For the rider to appear.

It’s the rider that gives the vehicle motion.

The rider,

The skill,

The passion,

The devotion.

The bike is the vehicle ,

As it lies limp on its side,

The driving force of man; the passion to ride.

Vision and determination,

To keep a bike on two wheels;

A rider with balance,

Life’s joy as she feels.
