from E. E. Cummings:

hist whist
little ghostthings
tip-toe
twinkle-toe

little twitchy
witches and tingling
goblins
hob-a-nob hob-a-nob

little hoppy happy
toad in tweeds
tweeds
little itchy mousies

with scuttling
eyes rustle and run and
hidehidehide
whisk

whisk look out for the old woman
with the wart on her nose
what she’ll do to yer
nobody knows

for she knows the devil ooch
the devil ouch
the devil
ach the great

green
dancing
devil
devil

devil
devil

Spring emerged from the primitive, frozen cocoon and transformed into the majestic, yellow and fluttering summer!  

.

from E.E. Cummings:

*********Metamorphosis*********

We’ve plodded through a weird and weary time,
    Called Winter by the calendar alone;
We have beheld an earth pool-deep in slime,
    Image a heaven of stone.

We’ve found life hid between the folds of mire,
    Sensed life in every place, heard life in tune.
The earth-shell cracks with underneath desire;
    Spring crawls from the cocoon.

Her puny wings vibrant with will to grow,
    She clings, expanding like an opening eye;
More large, more able, more developed, lo,
    The perfect butterfly.
