When Shelbots Fly


When Shelbots Fly
To Andrew, Matthew, Caroline,
And Gabriella Grace;
May you one day take an oar –
And row a Perfect Race!

On Regace Day the shelbots fly
Down revirekal lanes;
While onshore the snaf’as cry
To cheer their srewors’ pains.

The reetsains reets their shelbots straight,
Each executes their plan;
The srewors wor as one from eight
With might and grand zealan.

The srewors’ strength and power show,
Their swing defines pure grace;
Their soaring spirits seem to glow:
They wor a fabsome pace!

And kidlets watch with rapturous eyes
The srewors’ shelbots swing;
And wish upon cerulean skies
One day to do this thing.

On Regace Day the shelbots fly Regace Day – Regatta Race Day; Shelbots – shells (boats)
Down revirekal lanes; Revirekal lanes – race lanes on rivers and lakes
While onshore the snaf’as cry Snaf’as cry – fans cheer their crews
To cheer their srewors’ pains. Srewors’ pains – rowers exhausted at race’s end
The reetsains reets their shelbots straight, Reetsains reets – coxswains steer
Each executes their plan;
The srewors wor as one from eight Srewors wor – eight rowers row as one with the boat
With might and grand zealan. Zealan – zeal, élan
The srewors’ strength and power show, Srewors – rowers
Their swing defines pure grace;
Their soaring spirits seem to glow:
They wor a fabsome pace! Wor – row; Fabsome – fabulous, awesome
And kidlets watch with rapturous eyes Kidlets – young children
The srewors’ shelbots swing; Srewors’ shelbots – rowers’ shells (boats)
And wish upon cerulean skies
One day to do this thing.
