I think this is a very good poem. I like it a lot. The only thing i don't
like is the comparison to baseball, even though i play baseball i am
ashamed that all of these girly poets comare to baseball. It is a very
manly sport and i am very dissapointed

This is a very clever poem well written by a poet named Robert Francis.
The poem "Catch" can be compared to a baseball because any poems can be
tricky and full of meanings. He wanted the reader to think hard about his
poem. The last two stanza refers to any readers "Over his head, make him
scramble to pick up the meaning, And now, like a posy, a pretty one plump
in his hands". Poems are like baseball games; throw different words and
outwit the readers' knowledge.

I recently encountered this poem in my english class and I wanted to know
more about it. Since there were not any comment here, I just wanted to
post my point of view. I believe that this poem is about the importance of
interpreting poetry. . .Hence the name "Catch". I think that the baseball
game is symbolic of the relationship between a poem and its audience, or
either the poet and the reader.
