    Neil,

    thanks for introducing us to a poetic form that we haven’t seen or utilized here!

     

    It sets us an interesting challenge!

    Inspired by “The Wind” by RLS Robert Louis Stevenson
    & by the anthem of Gerry & The Pacemakers

    I saw you tear apart each team
    To keep alive your burning dream;
    And all around I heard such praise
    In your que […]

    Liverpool worthy Champions for 2019 / 2020.

    And worth it too, to get another very special poem from Sharon!

    Notes on a summer’s eve jog, during the pandemic

    they all look on…
    the raucous rooks rollick:
    “hey porky, you’re too unfit”
    the jiggedy jackdaw japes:
    “you’re too infirm”
    the swooping swifts swipe: […]

    Can we do it?
    Yes we can!
    And we did
    We went out and we played our matches
    Bettered the opposition when we could
    And enjoyed sporting contests
    With fluent football to the fore.

    But now we regrettably […]

    Hi Alex,

    what a fabulous poem!

    It captures the essence of non-league football, and the travel involved to and from matches.

    “Gathering on a Thames island for a sing-song”: possibly Eel Pie Island back in […]

    there’s an eerie silence as I head off to bed –
    the silence is natural
    for I’m always the last to settle

    but there’s a sense of devastation that permeates the corridors
    a sense of damnation and enforce […]

    Like a gnarled old hand, the spindly tree spread out above me
    Stooped over the country lane
    Its silhouetted fingers, tickling the hedge-hemmed curious calves

    Lying in wait somewhere, hidden and camouflaged […]

    If I wasn’t Ossie for the day
    Then I’d be the Cat
    For he was our hero
    And that was that

    All over the goalbox
    He’d leap and spring
    “There’s only one Peter Bonetti”
    Oh, how the Shed would sing

    And now […]

    The nest-builders are as busy as ever….
    a delightfully dappled thrush appears at one of my garden pots
    checks surreptitiously for danger
    instinctively knows I am fastened behind the bars, of toughened g […]

    Usually, it’s an acerbic reaction
    An emphatic ‘bothered’ and ‘bemoaned’
    Whence learning of:
    “All matches postponed”

    But this time around
    We nod and agree when it’s intoned
    For containment of […]

    I watched the first half live last night
    then I switched off
    for I guessed what would follow:
    lauded team of Albion, one down to an early, fluky goal
    a team unquenchable in the domestic league
    but up against […]

    I crossed over the road from the undertakers
    walked in through the park gate
    and there it was:
    my old pitch, bathed in beautiful sun
    still there
    still marked, still in obvious use
    And I remembered back
    to […]

    “By which a strip of land became a hole in time” – Dúrs Grunbein

    The rec still holds the voices:
    I pick Petie
    I pick Paulie
    I pick Danno
    I pick Scanner…..
    Or is it just compartments of my beleaguered mi […]

    I know it must be winter
    For the fixtures are piling high
    Even though we’re lucky
    And the weather’s kinda dry

    I know I must be old now
    For I rarely get to the games
    And I’m also having troub […]

    Tall and elegant of posture
    With a warm, endearing smile
    He’d materialize into the box
    In his own enduring style

    Everywhere he went
    As Hammer, Spur, Canary
    He was every fan’s favourite
    Ghosting past the […]

    I loved all Mishi’s poems!

    His passion shone through so brightly.

    Every club needs a Mishi.

    God Rest His Soul.

    And so José continues his journey
    In North London clime
    Subjecting with frosty demeanour
    But is he well past his prime?

    Certainly that’s our chary hope
    Sarf of the river
    But could this cussed, cranky cr […]

    Why no poem?
    Mojo magic’d away?
    Zeitgeist scooted off?
    Muse unamused?
    Support spaffed up against a wall?
    Or is it just
    the embarrasment
    of a ten year record
    of non-defeat
    too replete
    for anapestic […]
