Jewels sparkling red, white and blue

our gymnasts line up center stage

introduced to the whole wide world

their youthful, sweet smiles ablaze

They have dreamed of this moment

a chance to compete and win gold

stand on the podium, eyes on their flag

and have their team journey be told

Their team captain leading the way

Uneven bars to floor to vault to beam

performing with inner confidence

Awesome women, fierce and Final team

Nervous parents and gymnastic fans

hold their breath on each trick

hoping each does their best

without faux pax or unforgiving slip

Awaiting excitedly their last team score

staring, hands held, at the above board

intense coaches await in hesitant silence

Yes!  this U.S. Olympic team has soared

Best gymnastic team on this planet

women receive their necklace with gold

for all their sacrifice and hard work

The Final Five story awesomely told
