#1 Keeper

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Different shots
From all different angles
The upmost power
The daftest tangles.
Be this a problem
For my heroic #7?
No, not at all
She could stop the Grim Reaper!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A mixed nationality,
An array of teams to choose.
The best example of keeping perfection,
Even if we might lose.
Soon to be
The next Robert Green.
Plays better than Calamity,
By Capello, this should be seen.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The hill this phenomenal player has to climb,
Never gets any steeper.
And one day I’ll look back
and remember,
I know where we started.
But I also know this: That before long
My keeper, my best mate, will be a #1 keeper!

Notes

remember my 12-1 poem??
played the same team tonight and only lost by 5-0.
our keeper, one of the best mates i’ve ever had, played phenomenally, as i knew she always could!
