A chess poem

I'm thinking it would be fun to write a chess poem and I invite my fellow knights and fellow chess bloggers to do the same. Please put your a link to your poem in the comment section.

Here was one from Don De la Maza blog that goes back a ways.Done in the Haiku format.

I must comment on the beauty and simplicity
of the French after

1. e4 e6
2. d4 d5
3. e5 c5
4. c3 Nc6

An ideal opening for a Buddhist, perhaps.

One man controls space
His opponent, the tension.
A knight, intrigued, leaps.

    I often imagine the chess game after it is finished as a plot for a movie, or a boxing match, or a car race.

    I guess the moves and ideas behind them are abstract enough to translate into other media.

    Here's a haiku of my typical games:

    Stares without moving
    Why is he waiting? Argh!
    Did not press the clock!
