Each poem covers one aspect of the game, such as "The Equipment", "The Swing", or "The Course". About "The Attire", as an example Mr. Hale writes:
"But now, for some, Golf's merely an excuse
To dress like pimps on Forty-Second Street;
With fuchsia pants and shirts of bright chartreuse,
And alligator wintips on their feet."
Birdie. "Golf Sonnets" is a great gift idea, to golfers and non-golfers alike. It's an easy read without being simplistic, and the straightforwardness of the rhymes masks the complexity of the construction.
