But to-day the struggle. To-morrow for the young the poets exploding like bombs, The walks by the lake, the weeks of perfect communion; To-morrow the bicycle races Through the suburbs on summer evenings. I'll love you till the ocean Is folded and hung up to dry And the seven stars go squawking Like geese about the sky. But for him it was his last afternoon as himself, An afternoon of nurses and rumours; The provinces of his body revolted, The squares of his mind were empty, Silence invaded the suburbs.
The current of his feeling failed: he became his admirers. Now he is scattered over a hundred cities And wholly given over to unfamiliar affections; To find his happiness in another kind of wood And be punished under a foreign code of conscience. The words of a dead man Are modified in the guts of the living. With the farming of a verse Make a vineyard of the curse, Sing of human unsuccess In a rapture of distress;. In the deserts of the heart Let the healing fountains start, In the prison of his days Teach the free man how to praise. Misattributed [ edit ] Now is the age of anxiety.

The day was declared Jackie Robinson Day , and was later observed by all of baseball, with select players from every team wearing the number Players who wore No. While other teams placed the number 42 with the rest of their retired numbers, the Yankees did not do so at first. Ten years later, on April 17, , the Yankees honored Robinson by mounting the logo of Jackie Robinson Day with a corresponding plaque alongside the rest of the retired numbers.
When the Yankees moved to the second Yankee Stadium, they replaced the Jackie Robinson Day logo with a number 42 that resembled the other retired numbers. Later on they replaced the number 42 so that it resembled the Dodger's style, and on September 22, , a plaque was dedicated to Robinson in Monument Park.

The numbers 37 and 6, retired for Casey Stengel and Joe Torre respectively, are the only numbers retired by the Yankees for someone who served solely as manager of the team.

On May 14, , the Yankees retired number 2 in honor of Derek Jeter.
In the team signed Adam Ottavino and issued him the number 0, which he previously wore as a member of the Colorado Rockies. At least two Yankees numbers have not been formally retired, but have been kept out of circulation. The New York Yankees have not re-issued Paul O'Neill 's 21 since he ended his career at the end of , except for a brief period of a few days in when Morgan Ensberg and then LaTroy Hawkins wore 21, before fan complaints led Hawkins to change his number to 22 in April.

The teams also finished tied for first in , when the Yankees won a high-profile tiebreaker game for the division title.
