Vernal Equinox

in Just-

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

    I hope you get Sunday off this weekend - let a balloon free to celebrate!
