Happy Poetry Month

In honor of national poetry month I am presenting one of my truly favorite poems of all time. in just by e.e. cummings. Take a breath and read. It's wonderful.

      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
      spring

      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

      it's
      spring
      and
           the

                   goat-footed

      balloonMan       whistles
      far
      and
      wee

      e.e. cummings
