Much as I am positively delighted to be the poet in residence and have my poem ... first time ever .. published in America on the much debated subject of the men's sport/Soccer Football ...
title/Southampton Football Club scheduled publication - Immortal Verses ... poetry.com -
I take a passing interest in the results of Euro 2008 and found it highly entertaining.
This morning I was embarking upon a tidy up of paperwork and got side tracked by the Terry Wogan Show on BBC Radio 2 .. the songs were familiar and the blurb solid ... but in between all of this "talk" was a broadcast to say that Spain had won against Germany - the football competition .. Euro 2008 .... and its the first time in 44 years that Spain has actually won. Congratulations! to Spain!
I find the similarity in numbers significant and wonder if there is not an overlap in terms of what the No 44 means sto me as well as to Spain .. I lived for years at No 44/Winchester .. and that's were I embarked on my full time employment/teaching & work activity ... what a coincidence ... for Spain to win after 44 years and for me to /come out of retirement - at 35/to teach full time and work for salary!
Whew! that was close ...getting it all down - a challenge for a mere woman writer .. great broadcasts from BBC Radio 2 .. keep on talking ..
