There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

To days i think that ther is no one don't practice or play at least a sport
when I tell you a sport Your thinking is not confined to the football, basketball, handball ...
because ther is many sports you con play it without clubs or trainers like walking, running, Chess ...
and there are many sports we don't know it so anyone tell us which sport does hi\she play and try to discribe it

__________________________________________
i begin by myselfe
i play two sports
first one is running : Well known
second one is wushu king fu it is one of the Martial arts it known by Chinese martial arts the wushu has many style.
Almost all the styles inspired by the combat of animals.

------------------------------------

Nowadays I don't think there's anyone who doesn't practice or at least play one sport.
When I say sport, don't confine your thoughts to football, basketball, handball etc., because there are many sports you con play without have to join clubs or wear trainers, such as walking, running, chess ..., and there are many sports we may not know about. So, everyone tell us which sport you play and try to describe it.

__________________________________________
I'll start.

I play two sports: The first one is running, a well known sport, but the second one is wushu king fu. It is one of the Martial arts, known as Chinese martial arts. The wushu has many styles. Almost all the styles are inspired by the combat of animals.

    @souhaib If you wanted to start a new discussion, there was another thread with similar purpose "sports". But you have put your efforts, so I will share my views.
    I liked to play and practice badminton in my college and university time. Right now I don't have time to play it. But sometimes for a change I use to play football with my nieces.
    Second part of the question is a bit difficult to answer. It should be like would you like to describe it or elaborate it? If you have told me the purpose of these sentences, I would have better guided you. But good efforts!

    Rest @Lynne (our teacher) will correct the title and text.

    @bubbli When you say "use to", do you mean you don't any longer?

    @Lynne my understanding of this expression was different. Thank you for highlighting it. I've read in detail about this expression for clarity.

    I used to play squash when I was a student. Then I used to play a bit of badminton when I worked at a place where they had their own courts. I used to sail competitvely too, but now I only sail to relax.

    My favorite sports are swimming, badminton and chess. I prefer indoor games rather than outdoor games. No need to stay under sunlight..LOL.

    I enjoy swimming, and I practice it three times each week for around an hour. I like to go swimming early in the morning, when there is nobody else in the pool, as I find it to be very relaxing at that time. Then, I am in a great mood to start work afterwards, and it makes me a lot more productive for the rest of the day.

    well i play soccer, i wrote soccer because i don't know if you use the word football to mean (american football or football soccer), but in any case i play soccer and practice a little bit kick boxing, and the answer to the second question is: i'd like to practice bjj or parkour!!!

    I used to play tennis but, unfortunately, I don't play anymore (only occasionaly), because I don't have a good wall to play alone and I'm the only who likes it in my family.
    Also I have played badminton and a bit of basketball.
    When I was younger I used to go to swimming too.
    Actually I like doing Geocashing (that also can be considerated a game) and maybe I'll try return to tennis, because I used to enjoy it :)

    I running. Every day I run 6 kms and, by the weekend I run 10 kms. I spend 4:30 minutes per km. The big runners spend less than 3:00 minutes per km. Is fascinating practice sports, and indeed is very healthy. Do not forget practice at least three days for a week.

    Hi GemmaRowlands, I have the same habit with you enjoying swimming. While I usually swim on afternoon weekend. :) It looks you wake up very early in the morning, may I know what time do you usually swim in the morning?

    I have done gliding since i was 14. I like it mostly for the interaction of technology with nature that can make flights over hours and over hundreds of miles possible. Lastly, being ably to fly is everyones dream, isn't it?

    Another hobby i begun with a few years ago is sport climbing. I think its a great training and a good compensation for office work.
