Touchline


Football is a game that requires a team
Scoring goals the ultimate desire
All you want to do is win
Ninety minutes when battle commences
Referee a whistle blows
Flick, kick, control the ball
Passing it to and fro
Mastering it a art of form
Who can score?
Who can win?
Every careless kick counts
So with booted foot make it count
That is what football is all about.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
