In words that resonate throughout the sport
The long-awaited message sounds. "Today
Pitchers and catchers finally report."
Was it so long ago they went away?
Each year, the rush to melt the snow with heat
Of our anticipation, and to bring
The taste of not minding when you've been beat
Because it's meaningless-to force the spring-
Seems earlier and earlier, despite
The hot stove league's now searing blaze of heat.
The game is on our tongues, but it's a blight.
Our suppressed warmth melted the snow to rain.
So it's the winds of change we seek. The chill
May sting, but distracts from a greater ill.
