I'm cummings! I'm cummings! I'm CUMMINGS!

The weather has started to turn, and that puts me to thinking about one of my favorite e e cummings poems.

Here are three takes on the poem: in Just-

Firstly: In text form


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
 


Secondly: A dramatic reading by the poet himself


Thirdly: A little nugget from the mind of Scope.  You've been warned, but you're gonna click click it, you know you are.

Cora - Glad there was something SOMEONE like about this post.

JJ - Yes, you do need to get that fixed.

JenJen - Since last 4 posts have gotten a TOTAL of 20 comments among them (not counting my own, but counting spam), I will take what I can get and consider that you meant you were awed speechless.
