On Saturday came lots of swimming,
But this time no water was brimming;
At nine and at twelve
All else had to shelve
Both prizegivings not to be dimming.
Young R ‘Silver Badge’ has attained,
Her sister her ‘Tadpole’ has gained,
And came badges for each
For distance they reach:
At eight hundred; ten; they have strained!
While R got a trophy as well;
Though this time she failed to excel
At all of the races,
No sort of disgrace is:
‘Good Spirit Award’ much can tell!
