On a Company of Female Athletes

Some women, chastity their sword,
Under the star of battle seek
Glory in war, the past restored,
A breath of things uniquely Greek.

Nude to the waist, each handsome bust
Gives off, amid the scent of flower,
An awesome scent of stadium dust
Rose oil and sweat and milk gone sour.
