Silent singing on the grandstand

Silent singing on the grandstand

"Not the sweet, new grass with flowers
Is this harvesting of ours;
  Not the upland clover bloom;
But the rowen mired with weeds,
Tangled tufts from marsh and meads,
Where the poppy drops its seeds
  In the silence and the gloom."

(H.W. Longfellow in Aftermath)

When the game is over

When the game is over

"Twice a week the winter thorough
  Here stood I to keep the goal:
Football then was fighting sorrow
  For the young man's soul."

(Alfred E. Housman in A Shropshire lad no. 26)
