Netherlands, Poland, Denmark and Slovenia, England and Serbia

Dutch courage
Orange blossom
Poles far from greasy
And slippery
Total football
Reincarnated

Danish bacon
Save the best to last
Pastries all around
Slovenia draw level
Honours even

England oh England
Warm beers and red post boxes
Vicars and cycles too
Bellingham of mighty Madrid
Sends a bullet of header
The net bulges
Once again but only
Once

Ward Prowse, Alvarez and Maguire

At long last
Days of wine and roses
Picnics in summer
Ward Prowse, Maguire
Ward Prowse, Maguire
Alvarez Alvarez
Alvarez Alvarez
Let me hear you say
Let me hear you say
Claret and blue
Claret and blue
West Ham bound
West Ham bound
This is happening
This is happening
Echo chamber
Echo chamber
Prepare for Saturday
Prepare for Saturday

Daffodils

#19
she carefully
unwraps and eats
her sister’s rabbit

#20
the pitch side crowded
with daffodils

a face in the crowd

a face in the crowd
the low sun and a pigeon
slowly cross the pitch

Not Wiped Out

not wiped out but mapped
our dreams and the ground
helicopter blades

august August haiku

an august goal
in the eponymous month
monkey off Kane’s back

Late Summer

late summer
brings its own struggles
new boots and shin pads

No Time Now For Tears

no time now for tears
we went further than we hoped
so much to applaud

from euphoria
to the first cold light of day
let us not be sad

time to stand up proud
chances come and chances go
we will learn and grow

margins are so fine
in control then all at sea
but how close we came

well done to the fans
sacrificing everything
just to make it there

whatever you say
England filled a Summer month
with such hope and joy

tumble dried and out
but with so much faith restored
thank you for it all

what a ride it’s been
you made football come alive
you brought passion home

in the end we know
we exceeded wildest dreams
we can build from this

one image remains
England clapping all their fans
singing back to them
