A New Season

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Anticipation. A keen sense
of renewal. And though Autumn’s coming,
the stirring a new football season brings
is like a re-birth.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 My son has bought
a brand-new pair of boots,
his first, and is preparing
for the fray.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 My mind goes back
to my own schooldays, the winter afternoons,
the tension of the matches, and the pride
of victory, or the bitterness of defeat.
Looking at these pristine and
unworn Nikes
my son will soon put on,
I say a silent prayer
and wish him goals.
