WORLD CUP 1966 personal recollections
Blue dressed bridesmaid
Bolt down the food, get through the speeches.
Drink up the wine – what’s the time?
Time to put down the serviettes.
Time to …………
Tension is building - Tighter, harder, bolder
The groom, the best man and every one of the ushers are at the starting gate.
More interested in the future than the present.

Glancing from window
Into soft white snow wrapping
Signs of spring?
Long yellow catkins from twisted hazel
Where remains of distressed thoughts hung
Decaying yet diminishing as troubles often do
Frozen pond where jelly spawn from
Spent dead frogs was now protected
Ready to emerge as warmth re-appeared.
Tender plants pausing
