(Note: My kids will be at Wrigley this Wednesday, April 23, 2014, for the 100-year celebration. It’s my daughter’s gift to my son for his 30th birthday.–jrs)
A century ago
a ballpark opened
in Chicago, on the north side.
My children will be there to celebrate.
I was born thirty-six years
later on the south side.
If I live a century
I am hopeful of another celebration
complete with baseball and a
wide open field.
