The Thursday Poem

Potted Flowers with Books IV
Eric Barjot


In just-
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame ballonman

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 ballonman 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

e.e.cummings
(14th October 1894 - 3rd September 1962)
