Day 250: In Just Spring

What's the big fuss about Spring?

Here ee cummings explores some of its magic, when the world is 'mud-luscious' and 'puddle wonderful' and spirits hopskotch along (note the structure) and soar like balloons, up, up and away 'wee'.

[in Just-] - ee cummings

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

  1. I was walking in the woods yesterday after 2 days of rain. the sun was finally shining and spring had suddenly turned everything that stunning new green. This poem came to my mind.
