Dream of a Baseball Star

Rating: 4.6
I dreamed Ted Williams
leaning at night
against the Eiffel Tower, weeping.

He was in uniform
and his bat lay at his feet
- knotted and twiggy.

'Randall Jarrell says you're a poet! ' I cried.
'So do I! I say you're a poet! '

The imaginative fantasy poem shows significant love of baseball. 'Is it better to be a poet or a baseball star? ' is the question asked.

A beautiful picture of a baseball star in dream. Perfectly scenically painting every event with explicit imagination. Well written work.

It's a novel idea to imagine Randall Jarrell as a baseball star. A dream-like poem, one that I like.
