Meaning of Grand Slam
The meaning of this poem is to portray that when you get older you may not always be able to play the game. The poem depicts a field covered in frost and someone missing the days of playing baseball. This depiction leaves the reader to think about days of playing baseball and missing it. A theme through out the poem is that one, time is a thief that can take away what we love. Another is youth and how the game reminds you of your youth and all the times you played the game.
Dreams brimming over,
childhood stretched out in legs,
this is the moment replayed on winter days
when frost covers the field,
when age steals away wishes.
Glorious sleep that seeps back there
to the glory of our baseball days.
