e.e. cummings -- Spring is like a perhaps hand ~ In Search of Spring


Spring is like a perhaps hand 
(which comes carefully 
out of Nowhere)arranging 
a window,into which people look(while 
people stare
arranging and changing placing 
carefully there a strange 
thing and a known thing here)and

changing everything carefully

spring is like a perhaps 
Hand in a window 
(carefully to 
and fro moving New and 
Old things,while 
people stare carefully 
moving a perhaps 
fraction of flower here placing 
an inch of air there)and

without breaking anything.

Thanks for sharing that. I'm printing it out and putting it somewhere where I can see it through the season.

How nice to read poetry this rainy Sunday early spring morning. I love e. e. cummings.
