Well, okay, not so much realized as had a couple of people think poetry was on the groovy side.*

I gaze upon a field of shimmering green,
And, with wondering eyes will have seen,

Youths lean forward with eyes full of wonder,
White baseball tear the very air asunder,
Players swing bats and make sound like thunder.
The crowd doth roar and holler with delight!
The home team wins, all go home happy this beautiful night!

Ah, I know, Lineups:
