    spring training

    south of here the boys of summer are planting
    the seeds of spring, thawing out their throwing arms,
    weeding out errors, practicing and pitching,
    stealing a little extra daylight each evening
    before the month is out they will teach us, again,
    how to tell time, how to make a moment last forever,
    how to fail gloriously in this story of hope and heartbreak
    of what almost was and what still might be . . .
    there is gospel in those grandstands and forgiveness
    in those fields—ye who are weary come home

      We’ll hear the crack of the bat real soon in the ballparks. Thank you Milton.
