In Junior high, soccer we used to play. 

Up, down; between goal posts on soccer field,

Learning through error, our feet ball to wield. 

With studies done, we played the entire day.

—-

Our teacher was a pro; swore whole life he played —

Soccer until he was bored at twenty-two.

Taught us, throwing the ball into play through —

Kicking it in when it was offside of play.

—–

Years ago, I gave mean slide tackle away.

I was great at defence; not running entire —

Field; many falls on grass caused allergies ire.

Miss many days spent, stealing the ball rolling, 

Passing it off to a team mate scoring goals.

Game I won’t watch; to play again, desiring.

    1. Maria. Yes, I went to a very small Christian school. In my class there was maybe 25 of us. And only about 50 other junior highs. We always ended up playing soccer or polish baseball the last month of each school term. We got through the material quicker and we had an amazing teacher who taught us how to play soccer exactly. At times, he didn’t feel like teaching and we’d go play too 🙂 Thanks Maria 😉

  1. How well you explain the world’s sport! The last line resonates. Why watch something that we no longer do? That’s hard, emotionally. Great spirit is reflected–and reflected on–throughout. I enjoy all the energy, Mandi.
