There shall come Spring rains

When all seems lost to the cold decay

And winter shall release its icy reign.

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now

Is hung with bloom along the bough.

Toasting the sun,
See spring twirl
Flower-cups in the air.
Would I could wipe from your brow,
World,
The furrows of care!

spring in the window

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
-e.e. cummings
