happy earth day

spring is like a perhaps hand
by e.e. cummings


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.

  1. Soon you'll be experiencing it anew in Freiburg. The magnolias are recently in bloom, and many trees and flowers are still budding.
