Shortstop

We sing in unison, then

settle in to “Play ball”

 

He turns and squats before Her,

he bows his head and prays

 

“Help me”, he asks silently,

“I beg you, keep me whole.”

 

Ready, he springs to his feet,

filled with Her mercy

 

He plays with abandon

on his toes

 

He plays gracefully

with his heart

 

For the love of the game,

plays with Joy

 

She plays with him,

so, Life goes.

 

He does and does not,

there is no try.**

 

For praying with him,

he tips his cap.
