Lines West: Jan. 24

Read Me Casey

“Mama, mama, read me

‘Casey at The Bat’.”

“Read my favorite poem,”

He begged me as we sat

Searching “Best Loved Poems”

So worn and frayed it fell

Open at the very page—

The Casey tales to tell.

First “Casey at the Bat”

Then “Casey’s Revenge” it told.

Then “Casey Twenty Years Later”

When he was many years old.

Though Casey may

Have missed the ball,

He’s still a favorite of all

The little would-be Babes and Joes

Sad at how the ending goes.

— Marjorie Montgomery, August 2013
