The Baseball and the Boy.....I got inspired by this pic of my youngest grandson and wrote this....
Things of childhood begin to change. Toys on shelves are rearranged. A baseball takes the T-Rex spot, One tends to see that quite a lot. Jurassic Park poster, old and torn Cast aside, actors forlorn. Replaced by the Mets and Cubs, Dodgers and other baseball clubs. A ball cap strikes out the Batman mask. Superheroes all have other tasks. The only bat now in this boy’s room Compliments a new costume. The box of dinosaurs on the closet floor Don’t look scary anymore. Fossilized, that primitive roar Isn’t heard here anymore. Yes, the things of childhood come and go As speedily as the pitcher’s throw. Then quickly round the bases run Growing up can be such fun.
