Former U.S. Poet Laureate Writes A Poem For The Kansas City Royals
When Up To Date host Steve Kraskewas joined in studio by Billy Collins, he wasn't expecting the former U.S. Poet Laureate to have scribed a few lines a la Casey at the Bat as he waited in the green room.
But, impressed by the Royals and their fans, Collins offered this tribute.
Right here in this favorite land the sun is shining bright, A band is playing and some hearts are even light; Men and women are cheering, and children are not dreary, There is some joy in Kansas City - the Royals made the Series.
