A poem dedicated to the men who give their hearts and souls to play for the Stanley Cup, in June.
= = =
warriors of winter
warriors of winter with clubs in your hands and knives on your feet
a fierce battle for the coveted chalice
broken dreams are left on the ice
broken hearts are left on the ice
broken bodies are left on the ice
honta yo. true warriors are not afraid to die.
when it is all said and done,
the champions will hold aloft
the magnificent silver chalice, a golden moment
to be shared among the warriors of winter
