a long time ago, in a land far far away ...
well, ok, not that far away - just another suburb .... but, a long time ago ...
someone special introduced me to ee cummings and his poetry.
today, the sun is shining, the threat of snow is gone, spring does indeed seem to be on it's way. one of ee cummings' poems was emailed out as a journal prompt in one of my onlne groups - what timing! and, of course, i'd like to share it with you:
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
May today bring you sunshine, warm breezes, the joy of spring .... 1x1
