A Poetry Re-issue: I Threw a Baseball - a baseball poem

This poem originally appeared here in April of 2006 (and the post contains one of my fave comments (at number five)).

I THREW A BASEBALL
by
Gregory K.

I threw a baseball into the air.
If fell to Earth I know not where.
And so you see, I can't explain
What happened to your window pane.


You can check out the Poetry Friday roundup over at the wonderful A Year of Reading. For more baseball poetry (hey... there was a perfect game tossed yesterday, so baseball's on my mind!), hope on over to Bardball.

How about a link to your favorite news article about the perfect game? (please)

Love the poem! I'll have to check out your fibs -- I included one in my new MG novel in verse.

Love the idea of baseball poetry. And there has to be a poem in that 9th inning center field catch to save the perfect game. Maybe I'll try that for next week! By the way, I'm a life long White Sox fan.

Huh, Mary Lee - I relied on ESPN for this, as I happened to be watching at the right time, and have no favorite online link for you. I guess I'll just go with ESPN:

Perfect game recap

Author Amok - cool about the Fib! And thanks for the kind note!

And Jim - baseball poetry rocks (there are a few on this blog, actually, as it's a fave topic of mine). And congrats on having something fab to cheer about as a White Sox fan!

Thanks for the link! I added it to the post for other out-of-the-baseball-loopers like me!
