Kevin Miller's Spring Meditation is a tribute to baseball in poetry--the majors, the minors, the players, the coaches. It's also a poetic memoir of a life lived with baseball in the foreground.
A Picture of Eudora Welty
This is the March that follows no winter.
Already mosquitoes own left field.
A new kid wants to pitch but not attend class.
A legend from Spokane signs for thirty-one million.
Welty knows about cheap seats;
she knows a story will save our lives.
Stories keep us young.
Give me the right woman in a porch rocker
over any experienced bull pen.
