Silent Green


Silent green, final green
All is calm, all serene.
Crowds of onlookers, glad that they came,
Wait to witness the end of the game.
Watch in reverent peace,
Watch in reverent peace!

Silent green, final green,
Players crouch, caddies lean;
Friends and families offer a prayer;
Marshalls stand with their hands in the air;
Not a sound can be heard,
Not a sound can be heard.

Silent green, final green,
Cameras watch o’er the scene.
Sun sinks low at the close of the day;
One last putt and the ball’s on its way:
Listen now to the roar,
Listen now to the roar!
