Markings seamus heaney

Markings-Seamus Heaney

We marked the pitch: four jackets for four goalposts, 

That was all…

And then we picked the teams…

Youngsters shouting their heads off in a field 

As the light died and they kept on playing 

Because by then they were playing in their heads… 

It was quick and constant, a game that never need 

Be played out…

There was fleetness, furtherence, untiredness 

In time that was extra, unforeseen and free.
