Things To Do during a Rain Delay

From the book

That Sweet Diamond

by Paul B. Janeczko, Carole Katchen (Illustrator)

Watch the puddles deepen in front

of the dugouts.


Work your umbrella up up

and and

down down.


Build a castle of used paper cups.


Count all the stairs

walk all the aisles

from left field to right.


Hold our umbrella just so

to let raindrops drip off the edge

onto the neck of the man in front of you.


Look away quickly when he turns.
