One night in May

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Out of the darkness came passion and glory
Passion in red; glory in white.
Glory once; glory twice; glory thrice.
Glory thrice but thrice no more.
Passion waning but glory fading,

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 For glory does not last forever.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Passion once with leadership
“Still time for the impossible to happen maybe…”
Passion twice with a final farewell
“Miracles are possible…”
Passion thrice with skill
“And mission impossible is accomplished…”

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And passion, with one final dive
Saves the day.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The Reds are Champions of Europe once again.



I wrote this poem after the final of 2005 in istanbul, one of the most memorable nights of my life.
