Chanson Innocent

Sunrise, and Spring is here!

Yesterday was the Vernal Equinox . . . daffodils grew yellower still . . .

A few things were planted . . .

And John installed the new tuteurs (made for my birthday) in the box garden.

Spring is always a time of such infinite promise and ambition and joy . . . a time to celebrate with e.e. cummmings' s goat-footed balloon man . . .




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
