I love you, giant ball of burning helium!

It’s been the perfect spring week. I have been reading and re-reading one of my favorite poets.

 

Spring is like a perhaps hand
E. E. Cummings, 1894 – 1962
III

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.
