Title: “The Water Dragon Poetry which is one of the musics of Tianci is composed about ‘Wheelchair basketball’”
The five people who was the particularly outstanding experts,
in the sports ground, made their wheelchairs to run fast.
Wanted to get a ball,
they used the deep stratagem and the tactics many times over.
To break through that their opponents guarded against them,
they knew about the position of the opening,
and immediately, they started to attack the enemy’s lines.
At last, they threw the ball far away,
and their companies caught the ball with their full effort,
to get three points with throwing three-point shots,
and they competed to show their players’ specialties
that made their proper properties which were known beneath the sun widely.
The five people of the players were different abilities each other.
And the extends of their physical injury (their barriers)
were also different.
The players of the serious injury
supported the players of the slight injury.
And the players of the slight injury were active.
And the five people’s feelings were not different.
We know that it is not from our feelings of affection and compassion
that we are impressed here.
We enjoy naturally, and we do not use fine language
and we do not keep up appearances.
With my full effort, I will intonate the poetry
about the moments of the Wheelchair basketball games.
And I want to make my feelings of joy and fun to know everybody.
And I hope to see the everybody’s expression of joy.
