One of my favorite poets is e e cummings

One of my favorite poets is e e cummings
He has influenced much of my writing.
And “in Just-” is one of my favorites.
And while I know it’s summer – a little late to be posting this poem –
I say it’s better pate than liver.



in Just-

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
