[in Just-]

Here is a great poem by e. e. cummings who didn't always use punctuation and who made up lovely words.  I love the way this poem is written.

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

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


balloonMan          whistles

And here is the poet himself reading the poem.

So, on to the challenge.

Using the poem itself or inspiration from the video make a page in your journal.

Or how about writing a poem about Spring yourself!
