Angellic Cheer

This week the new New Yorker sends

Us all a brand new “Greetings, Friends!

Yes! Join us as we ring the bell

For our old friend Roger Angell

Who effortlessly rhymes to cheer

Up the entire blogosphere.

I didn’t know. I turned the page

And there I saw the white-haired sage

Of baseball had, once more, stood in

To take his swings, that paladin

Of wintry joy and festive mirth:

Godspeed, good friends, and peace on earth.
