To the rocky wall and lilac bush
A backyard field of dreams.
To the meadow fescue edge
An open green for childhood dreams,
Above the mint and carrot patch
Where bunnies, birds, and butterflies dream.
Just 17 feet from the lilacs to the dusty patch.
Just 22 feet from the patch to the minty hill.
Each appeared to be 90 feet,
Beneath the roaring crowds it seemed.
