Don Ritchie


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.
