My boots crush against the new-fallen snow
Cold airs stings my face as bitter winds blow
Winter is here, this we all know
For that is the way the seasons go
This weather is #fine, until it is not
Then we yearn for the days when it was hot
The green grass, curveballs, a solo shot
And pitching changes with danger fraught
But with season’s change, baseball it will bring
It’s a call we answer on the first ring
But until the return of the sport I call king
I’ll just stare out the window and wait for spring.
