Home Run -- a baseball poem

Gregory K.

Fly ball.
Going deep.
What a sight I see...
Just the back of the left fielder.

Baseball is my favorite sport, it's true. This Fib comes not so much from memory, but from a feeling this scrappy leadoff hitting second baseman wished he had more often!

(I'm posting an original poem-a-day through April in celebration of National Poetry Month. Links to this and other poems here on GottaBook (and there are lots of others, because poetry is NOT just for April) are collected over on the right of the blog under the headline "The Poems".)

Wish I could think about baseball season right now--but it snowed here in Massachusetts yesterday! That's New England for you.

Like your new Fib. By the way my "A Poem a Day #5" is for you! No Fibbing!

Snow during baseball season is just plain wrong. Wrong, I tell you! Here in LA we had a similar problem, though, as game time temperatures dipped into the 60s....
