The Wonder Of It All to Top Soccer Shootout Ever
The wonder of a couple
The wonder of Scott Sterling
The Wonder Of It All (Martin verse)
Since curtains of our love took final fall
A romance which the stars will long recall
A season which the flowers still enthrall
Our kisses were the spark of each new day
Our Joys became the light of other’s way
And in the pure enchantment of our play
Our footsteps saw no sadness or dismay
Unending was the wonder of it all
The splendor of each moment giving way
Two youthful hearts in rhythm with their play
And dreams adrift from paradise enthrall
Our dances were the meaning to the day
As fascination’s glimmers toward us fall
For memories mid kisses to recall
A fairytale this absence of dismay
For truth awoke from efforts to enthrall
So much this soul refuses to recall
As once again beside her grave I fall
I wonder does she dream of me at all
It all comes back to him in this Martin verse. In this poem the beginning line takes on new meaning when the poem is over. This is a Martin verse. A poetic form that I developed in 2011. I mention this to encourage others to create a unique form. It can be done.
The story of Arlene and Martin is over. It started in a fairytale, when a young girl's tear touched a boy's arm. They lived in a palace in the sky. They were married and were granted one absolutely perfect day. A day with not one problem. Since then, life had its ups and downs. In those ups and downs such wonders were seen, experienced and created. We were not rich or world travelers. We did live and enjoy one of the most beautiful cities on earth, in the best of times, and from there ventured out. We were blessed to be the source of many changes including improving the San Francisco public schools, introducing innovations to youth sports, and introducing changes to an old, old fraternity. We had two remarkable children, Peter and Robin. Most of all, Arlene and I were "those two lovers". People loved to have us around. Did I say, the story of Arlene and Martin is over? I look around and see the changes Arlene and I were involved with. I encounter lives we influenced. Then there are the memories. The unbelievable memories. Am I sad Arlene is gone? Yes. But that it happened at all...
With the holiday season upon us and another year almost over, there is a touch of sentiment in the air. For those who are like me and can no longer do much of what we once did, the air of the past can be a bit daunting. Sentiments can be things we did or things we wish we did. Sentiment can be people, places or things that we miss. Sentiments can be "those good old days." Sentiment is a lot of things. Confusing is one of those things. I miss those big Thanksgiving dinners with Arlene's family. They were great. Get the picture? We cannot go back to the past. Now is tomorrow's past. Make the most of now so we can add one more great sentiment to those holiday seasons yet to come, not only for us but for those around us. A celebration of a life well lived. Now is our tine. How important it is that we take our now and Enjoy.

Soccer is our sport if memories are our goal
Soccer is a sport played by 250 million players in over 200 countries, making it the world's most popular sport. One of soccer's most famous fictional, goalies is Scott Sterling, of Studio C. One of Scott's most memorial moments was a showdown between the Yale Bulldogs and the North Carolina Tar Heels.
