Ode to a Homerun

Posted March 9, 2009 & filed under Notebook.

The ball flies off the bat
As if to touch the stars
I start to trot
To first base
The ball clears the fence
With ease
My fist goes into the air
In excitement
The crowd roars
For I just won the game
With one swing of the bat
I round second
Then third
Finally home plate
The team greets me at home
With congratulations
And high fives
I am the hero
I just won the game with
My first homerun.
