Baseball: Opening Day Poem by Cretan Maineiac

Baseball: Opening Day

Rating: 5.0

Muggy today, a
pop of the mitt, a whiff of
the grass, swish of the
bat in the April air,
and two little words: 'Play ball! '

This poem captures what we, as Americans, wait for... those two words! Incredible how you said so much in 26 words. I enjoy all of your poems - of all lengths - but this one incorporates all of my senses, and that's always a good thing. Wonderful! X
