Rare Blue & Balloons

in Just- 
spring    when the world is mud- 
luscious the little 
lame balloonman 
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 balloonman whistles 
far    and    wee 
and bettyandisbel come dancing 
from hop-scotch and jump-rope and 

it's spring 
and the goat-footed 
balloonMan    whistles
