A lesson from long-jump

There is a lesson I learn
From long jump;
This lesson,
The French articulate so well
When they say,
It’s better to step back
To jump better;
(Il faut reculer,
Pour mieux sauter)
To jump well in long-jump,
You go behind;
And then you come running;
That will enable you
To spring better;
And go further;
The goalkeeper stoops,
To better spring on the ball;
When you have a difficult task,
Step back;
And then spring on it;
That way, you get it done.
