in Just—

in Just-
spring      when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame baloonman

whistles      far      and wee

and eddyandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it’s
spring

when the world is puddle-wonderful

the queer
old baloonman whistles
far       and       wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and

it’s
spring
and
the
goat-footed

baloonMan       whistles
far
and
wee

e.e. cummings (1894-1962)
