(A tribute to one of the finest captain of Indian Cricket M.S Dhoni)
The helicopter shot clears the ground,
Bails off his lightening gloves,
He the one having a vibrant smile,
Lifting a nation's spirit in the skies.
Adorned in the colours of the Indian flag,
He walked with a sky high will,
Ferocious as a leopard his ones and twos,
Rendered every bowler helpless to toil.
Nail biting situations a childlike play,
He took a rabbit out of his hat,
Witty reviews and sharp eyed tactics ,
Gave innumerable moments of rejoice and gay. Boundaries on and off the fence,
Blazed like fire from his willow evergreen,
His every trick at the bowler's end,
A piercing thorn in the opposition's den.
Awards and accolades too small to describe,
A leader like him a rare sight,
Jubilant wins in thrice formats,
Makes him a skipper class apart.
Pouching the prey in his tiger claws,
He jumped in the air like a leopard tall,
Whom success and honour bow as a bending tree,
His heroics won minds and hearts.
Simplicity and humility adorned his heart,
Spirit of Cricket shining in his every act,
God of Cricket offering tributes to thee,
Playing under him a blessing indeed
Fragrance of his fame spread far and wide,
He an icon of a nation's pride,
He came conquered and left so soon,
A void almost impossible to fill his shoes.
The sound M.S vibrates in every ear,
The team shall miss you very dear,
Cricket bows in awe to a legend,
Who changed the course of a sport forever.
