Farewell to The Winter Olympics

I will miss the Sochi Games...  The stunning, mountain views;
Miss the way athletics could transcend the nightly news,
Miss the competition and the many acts of grace,
Miss the joy you'd see upon a medal winner's face.

Jumping off a mountain with a board strapped to my feet?
Closest that I'll ever come is watching folks compete.
I will never fly across the ice, but I can dream...
Full of awe and admiration for the U.S. team.

Each and every one of them has made their country proud.
Even when they didn't win a medal I was "wowed."
Russia topped the medal count, but I'm relieved they did.
If they hadn't, Putin might have really flipped his lid.
