Notes

The sources for this poem are the publication from July 1931
“Science of Mind ” in which they spoke about Carlyle and where is included Ernest Holmes’ Sunday Morning Talk
and one speech of Princess of Wales about human pain caused by the landmines.
I translated both in thoughts about football and put all together.
