    Coming up your way,
    From NYC through DC.
    Should I stretch my trip?

    Overbay and the Big Hurt.
    They make pitchers pay.

    When the snow comes down,
    I think of the cool green grass
    on a warm June's night.

    Breaking haiku regiment
    To wish you all some merriment
    May your dreams of longed-for pennant
    End in a series, heaven-sent

    Joy and peace are in the air
    Dice-K's stuffed in Sox with care;
    'Tis a season filled with love
    To imagine lineups, oil your glove

    Losses past are bygone hist'ry
    Next year's champs are yet a myst'ry
    Gone are curses, once infernal
    For even Cubbies, hope's eternal

    Spring's the antidote to Fall
    The time of robins and "Play ball!"
    As every season is a sequel
    So Spring Training's but a prequel
    When every team and dream is equal
    And faith belongs to one and all

    So on a note that's warm and cheery
    I'll close these eyes becoming weary
    And wish you all from far away
    The Merriest Possible Christmas Day!

    Thanks for the poem

    7 AM Christmas Eve

    (An Ogden-Nash-ish Xmas Baseball Poem)

    This ain't as good as Sandlot's verse
    But not, I think, a whole lot worse
    To Baseball fans here and a-broad
    And all the players (even A-rod!)
    From Tokyo to Panama's isthmus
    A grand New Year and Happy Christhmus!





    (Okay, you try to rhyme "Christmas" before you have had any caffeine! )

    To find a rhyme with famous locks
    Is but a snap for Vt-SOX
    Metred rhyme or verse that's free
    She decorates like Christmas tree
    She churns it out I know not how
    So c'mon Annie take a bough
    And with a big grin sing with us
    Isthmus, schmisthmus,
    Merry Christhmus!

    Thank you, Sandlot. I was going to try iambic pentameter, but find that's impossible before breakfast.

    Should be more careful
    when writing baseball's scriptures.
    Shame on you, Elvis.
