Football Is Round


A shooting ball is swooshing;
People in globe are watching.
On a sudden
Hails of cheers, vales of tears.
At losers' silence, winners're proud
Football is round.

In the humming of vuvuzel
Behind yellow and red card
All pass in the eyes of eagle
Nothing is impossible.
Football is round
For entertaining goal.

    High-sounding voice that deafens someone's ear
    Offensive words are hurting like a spear
    Intense emotions burst into tears
    This isn't new, each one is used to this.... nice one i enjoyed.....10

    waka waka waka.
    .it is pride of the game..
    It has not lately come
    enjoyed widely and welcome

    It may be in shape round
    How much joy is found?
    What does it sound?
    It is gaining ground....... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
