Field of Play

Beaten by a blister

But not down in defeat

Emma’s education

Is coming on quite neat


Fairy tale of New York

Fairly put to rest

Now the work of every day

Now the daily test


Learn and keep on learning

Set backs set you up

What we learn about ourselves

Is worth the FA Cup


There is winning and there’s losing

There is taking to the field

There is the attitude you play with

Play and never yield


Sport a metaphor for life

Take the field and play

Be gracious win or losing

It’s grace that wins the day
