Catches Win Matches....! A Sequel....

The Original story...(posted on 10 Mar'13)
This boy sat daily on the college lawn,
And thought, life was a long, dull yawn...
Until he met this miss
And gave her a kiss.
Now, it seems their match is drawn!
The Sequel....
In fact, there is a catch...;
No “game set and match”
For this campus love story,
That gained fame and glory
And is the talk of every batch...!
They met regularly, almost daily
And slowly realised their “folly”
Of going over the moon
About that kiss too soon.
Now, here comes the googly...!
They decided to separate,
But looks like - a little too late,
For they couldn’t forget ‘The Kiss’,
Which they did sorely miss
And soon, went on a date...!
You be the umpire and take a call
To declare the earlier one a no ball;
And let them take guard anew,
Which in your considered view,
Will enable a fresh start – Love All!

(Sorry to have mixed up Cricket and Tennis – both my favourite sports...A big thanks Mr. Kulbir Bhalla,  for inspiring me to write this sequel - Howzzat...?!)
