the retirement of a soccer star

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 She stood on top of the spinning globe,
Waving farewell to her fans and team mates;
The dazzling gold, around her neck
Lighted up the beige sky.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The star had extinguished her light;
Darkness had filled the football stadium,
Silence, a mourner as she departed the national team;
Her final game, played and won…

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Mia Hamm had put her soccer boots in her memory box.
