Di Stéfano’s Gone~haiku

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Di Stéfano’s gone
with him goes another time
when we watched in awe

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 there in black and while
tearing Eintracht clean apart
on that magic night

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 in 1960
Alfredo Di Stéfano
taught us something new

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 in five finals he
played and scored and thrilled us all
in that Real side

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I was only 12
but I still recall his strength
farewell Alfredo
