in Just-

by e.e. cummings

---------------------------------------------------
I dedicate this to Brian, who introduced
it and so many wonderful poems to me.

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


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 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
