He’s my shadow,
He’s his Mom’s shadow,
He follows Mom’s Daniel,
He’s his Coach’s shadow,
He knows things,
Sometimes his empathy
pours out, as in sorry for his
classmates who don’t have breakfast
or cannot play in sports due to costs,
or crying that “Pete needs a family!”
which truly made my good friend,
Linda and I burst into tears
during scene in “Pete’s Dragon.”
So, he stands and looks up to
his three coaches, each unique
in background and personality.
He answers “The Coach” when
he shouts out questions,
Where do you throw the ball?
(whichever base is next to
player arriving or stealing. The kids
answer, “First/Second/Third base”
or “Throw it Home!!”
Which base do you run like crazy?
Who do you look out for?
(“Your team!”) or (“Teammates!”)
X X X X X X X X X
Baseball is an acquired taste,
but many friends…
