Another Season - Smokey Memories

The Brooklyn Cyclones 
      now represent the borough 
of Brooklyn 
    where I spent my 
formative years 
    Memeories of the long - departed 
     Linger over Keyspan park
like clouds 
Duke Snyder, Jackie Robinson,
    Sandy Koufax, Carl Furillo and 
the rest 
  are engraved in the borough's heart
        The Brooklyn Cyclones 
   now represent the borough of Brooklyn 
       I came into this world 
during the legendary 1955 World Series
When the Dogers finally triumphed
     Let's hope the Cyclones can 
follow in theit footsteps
     Bringing joy to 
Brooklyn aka Kings County

    By the way I dance, only on occasions. Like your poem I just read. about this poem: I don't think much is smoky about your memories.. I think you hold on to them pretty well. I'm glad you are finding joy once again,, in this time and age. I don't know who's Jackie Robinson, but I have sure heard and read lots about him... I think his nickname is Smoky Robinson... lol..i don't know... another great one,, gonna head out already! Good night xox~LINDA

    I see you are a dedicated fan Matthew, I remember someone taking me to a baseball game and I fell asleep! Needless to say, I wasn't invited again. I guess you still love the games by the sound of it.
