More springtime joy!

I heard this wonderful story on the radio yesterday about my all-time favorite poet, e.e. cummings. His work has spoken to me since I discovered how cool poetry was when I was in 7th or 8th grade. And, today, I got to learn something new about him. He was also an artist! Listen to the audio version of the story, if you can. It’s delightful. It includes my favorite e.e. cumming’s poem, “sweet spring is your”.

    I had no idea cummings was also such a fine artist. I remember loving his poetry when I was in the 7th grade too. I’ll have to go and listen to the npr link.
