The Infield

From the book

That Sweet Diamond

by Paul B. Janeczko, Carole Katchen (Illustrator)

Like the barnyard,

with the infielders

scratching

in the dust

with their toes;

 

walking

heads down

but with a watchful eye

on the umpire

ready to squawk.

 

And the chatter

batterbatterbatter

hummmm baby

no batterbatter.

Always the chatter.
