The Football Poet

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I knew a boy once
With golden hair and azure eyes
(although he would tell you his eyes were green if he could)

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And he laughed with the world
And the world laughed with him
Delighting in his ease and grace

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But he hid from that world
His own world’s pain
A pain he shared with another

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And though there were many paths
He could have taken
He took the one less travelled by

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 And became a Football Poet
