It's Almost Just-Spring


By E.E. 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
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

That's fooking brilliant! *imagine cockney accent* I'm doing that a lot lately; thinking in odd accents. I think it's a past life shining through or something.
Love that poem, dude. I'm gonna google the author, think I'll find anything?
