Baseball: Sign of Spring

Baseball: Sign of Spring: A Rictameter

Cubs play

At Wrigley, first

Home game, exciting day.

They often fail and make us wait

Until it's time to say, "Wait 'til next year."

But still we watch and hope "Cubs Win!"

Will echo through the stands.

A sign of spring?

Cubs play.

Just lucky, I guess, to see your first post in awhile. And to have it be about baseball when everyone else is blogging about spring flowers. I think spring flowers are wonderful but spring is about a lot more. If I was clever, that could all be said in a rictameter!

"Spoken" like a true Chicago northsider, Marlys! And I love seeing a new rictameter.

What a great rictameter; I love these that you write!

Never been there, but Wrigley Field seems to have imprinted on my brain nevertheless.
