Warming

in just spring
when the world is mud-luscious...
when the world
is puddle-wonderful...

- e.e. cummings ( 1894 - 1962)

The snow is receding and our front lawn is emerging - replete with lumpy, bumpy mole trails. First time we’ve seen that green/brown grass since last December. The track at the high school is now completely free of snow and ice. Calendar Spring will officially be here in just a few days. While we haven’t quite reached mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful, I think I’m ready.

I love ee cummings, "no one, not even the rain, has such small hands".

Hi DMM -
Me too.
My sister participated in a reading of e.e. cummings' work when she was in college. If I remember correctly, it was broadcast on the local PBS station which was a UHF channel. We didn't have access to that so we drove to a family friend's home in Providence to watch. I've been a fan ever since!
