Don Ritchie, fastest ultra soul-delight!
Your silence-heart, your volcano-vision-eyes,
Your lightning-speed, your soundless-skies
Pierce the veil of stark ignorance-night.
Speed is your life, endurance your excellence-height.
Champion runner, champion teacher, champion leader-force!
In you the runner’s world finds its perfection-source.
Victory within and victory without, your progress-light.
