Our Pride of Lionesses

A poem inspired by the brilliant performance of the Lionesses at the World Cup

Millions of us keenly tuned in,

A World Cup Final – could we win?

Go for it girls, it’s been far too long,

And Sweet Caroline’s now our favourite song.

We yearned for goals, then they scored one.

A spectacular save, but Spain still won.

Hard to believe you had come so near,

Slumped in our seats, many shed a tear.

Yet there’s still cause for celebration,

You’ve truly inspired the next generation,

A great set of skills and such resilience,

Team play, plus personal brilliance.

It’s clear to all you’re as good as the men,

Win a World Cup? Not if, but when.

That’s why we stand and cheer so loud,

You lionesses have made us proud.
