I’m looking forward to listening to the freebie from the Sunday Times :
Lynne Truss’s “Eats, Shoots and Leaves” –
to see where I might have gone wrong in the poem above!
With ex footballers Craig Shakespeare, Mark Wright and Ian Wright, write, right – in mind!
Recommended web visit : eatsshootsandleaves.com & try the punctuation game!
which reminds me – I must check back through a certain someone’s contributions to check for his habit of – did’nt

I really like this poem. So many great phrases: “striped and manicured”, “a crowd of heads go drooping”, “and maintain home advantage”, “when Mum blew for dinner”. Much appreciated! Thank you.

Such great words Ray. So evocative of that time of innocence Kepp on mate. More please. It will be under the Nostaglia section too.

As a child I drew crowds; row upon row,
fifteen thousand little circles for the fans,
such a great line…bewcause we all did…and golaposts nets and floodlights too…
