The outfield boy stands waiting all alone, playing the game that many children love. From the pitcher’s mound, a ball has been thrown. The outfield boy stands waiting all alone. The ball has been hit. See how it has flown straight into the glowing boy’s baseball glove! The outfield boy stands waiting all alone, playing the game that many children love. Written Dec. 2015 for the Oil Paintings 4 & 5 Poetry Contest of Eve Roper

Makes one wonder what those fielders think about while waiting for a fly ball. I suspect some of them are so dull they think of zip. Love, daver

It was clever of you to use the Triolet form for this one. You caught the essence of this picture...and a winning ball!

Very nice poem about a sport I love, now if we could just keep some of the parents away long enough to let the kids play.
