First Sign Of Spring (February 28, 2016)

By twos
And threes
The snowbirds gather
Bashing
In the Florida sun.

Loosening up
Their vocal cords
After a long winter
Of disappointment.

Chirping
Their territorial songs
"Let's go Blue Jays"
And
"Go Jays Go".

That strange bird
In black
Many have mistaken
As a "blind" bat
Is the umpire.

Shrieking out
"Ssstttrrriiikkkeee".

While
Displaying
Its ritual courtship dance
For all
To see.

Yes
Folks
It's Spring Training time
Once more.

Where
Dreams of glory
Fill young
And old
Alike.

As hope is
Eternal
To baseball fans.
