Grand SlamBy Marjorie Maddox
Dreams brimming over,
childhood stretched out in legs,
this is the moment replayed on winter days
when frost covers the field,
when age steals away wishes.
Glorious sleep that seeps back there
to the glory of our baseball days.
Nice day though I did little formal observation of Yom Kippur, little fasting, some reading, walk in the park, breaking the fast with parents plus their very longtime friends and the children and grandchildren of those friends, The Masked Singer
, then the Nationals-Dodgers game which is currently in the 10th after disastrous early innings, then a great 8th for the Nats followed by a grand slam in the 10th. (My poor uncle and cousin, Dodgers fans, are at this game in L.A.!)
