Whom Should I Thank?

by Robert Ronnow


You may feel about the planet what you feel about a great baseball team or band: that once there was a moment when, unknown to us at the time, we convened and lost and found ourselves in what we created.


Whom should I thank for this day? A fresh-mown lawn is a robin’s repast. A bear a black bear a rolling delicately dancing graceful as silence sailing through the ferns and understory unafraid and in no hurry.


My musician referral service, vacation rental business, nonprofit management system, plant identification database, great American songbook and anthology of poems. Coach says in a thousand years back and forth games like lacrosse and soccer will be played against genetically engineered primates


but baseball will be played solely by humans. In a thousand years, amen.
