Eagerly he watched as the postman drew near

Eagerly he listened and what did he hear?

     A small parcel softly dropped down in the hall

     But eagerly opening it was the best thing of all.


Eagerly the contents came out of their box

Eagerly he examined his new football socks

     Warm on the legs and with a famous brand name  -

     For certain they’d help win the next football game.
