Seamus Heaney's Adventure

Ammons sees nobody
at Seamus' drive way.

until a blue Mazda
parks there, noises, and

under a cowboy hat, a car seat,
then, all hearts

jump and
burst in cherry blossom joy

Jared baby,
Christmas bells....

the ping-pang game

A rectangle table,
A small net,
Two short bats,
A white ping-pang ball.
Ashley, Beau, Hunter, and George,
Pair up to play the game,
Two at a time,
25 VS ???, Done!
The ball goes back and forth,
Arms swing,
Eyes opening,
Both men and women are out of breath.
Either in Vietnam or in Japan,
Either Russian, American, Italy or German,
Ping-Pang games connect friends,
Ping Jenny Lang wins fame as Asian.
