In Just Spring
by e.e. cummings
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little
whistles far and wee
and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's
when the world is puddle-wonderful
old balloonman whistles
far and wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing
from hop-scotch and jump-rope and
Here's another stellar poem by e.e. cummings: "anyone lived in a pretty how town."
And here's a bio of e.e. cummings at The Poetry Foundation.
Happy Spring, everyone and Happy National Poetry Month!
