Football Blog Carnival: World Poetry Day

Today is a momentous day for two reasons: firstly, it's World Poetry Day, a day designated to promote the reading and writing of poetry around the world. Secondly, Football Fairground is playing its part in the first Football Blog Carnival - a scheme whereby football bloggers can regularly write on a common subject and cross-promote each others work.

Many other football blogsites are taking part in the first Football Blog Carnival by writing a poem about the beautiful game during the course of the day. Our contribution, written by Chris O, is as follows.

Callow Glory

I knew them all
My heroes' names
Etched into my sunshine paltry days

Ready for dispatch
Ball at feet
A vista of local green before me

My friend in spirit
Takes the ball
Kicks it beyond distance and memories

Our game begins
We are our heroes
Adulation silent from unknown thousands


The next blogsite to publish its contribution to the Blog Football Carnival on World Poetry Day is Northern League Day at 6pm today (Monday 21 March 2011)... check it out!
