The United Trinity

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The oppressive greyness of the sullen sky
Could not engulf me as I stood enthralled
By the revered statue of The United Trinity,
Always loved and respected
From here to infinity.
More than a monument to footballing glory,
Those three fine men immortalised here,
Leading players in the Manchester story,
United they stand
And United they were.
George Best, Denis Law, Bobby Charlton,
Football greats who have gone down in history
For their skills on the pitch with that round leather ball.
They all are now facing Old Trafford,
And will always be there standing tall.

On my first ever trip to Manchester to present my Duncan Edwards poem at the premiere of he short film of his life, I stood in awe alongside the statue of the United Trinity players in front of Old Trafford. What an experience for me!!
