Poets' Corner: [In Just-]


 e. e. cummings (1894-1962)

[in Just-]

in Just-

spring          when the world is mud-

luscious the little

lame balloonman

whistles          far          and wee

and eddieandbill come

running from marbles and

piracies and it's


when the world is puddle-wonderful

the queer

old balloonman whistles

far          and             wee

and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and






balloonMan          whistles

Well, it's a cold rainy, sometimes snowy day here. Pretty much the dreariest week we've had all winter...spring?

Yes, officially spring since 4:42 p.m. yesterday, they say. It's just now gotten up to 60 and it's sunny here, but the wind is cold. Should be up to 80 tomorrow. I had wondered if you all were getting blanketed with snow up there. Stay warm!

It's spring up north and we love every puddle wonderful moment of it.

Thanks for the poetry lessons. Always appreciated.

You're welcome. Spring has been coming on for some weeks here - the wisteria is in full bloom, high up in the pine trees in our neighborhood, and the sidewalks are covered with lavender petals just now.
