The Moon A Balloon?
wonderful poet E. E. Cummings
suggested the Moon was indeed a Balloon:
who knows if the moon's
a balloon, coming out of a keen city
in the sky - filled with pretty people?
(and if you and I should
get into it, if they
should take me and you into their balloon,
we'd go up higher with all the pretty people
than houses and steeples and clouds:
away and away sailing into a keen
city which nobody's ever visited, where
Spring) and everyone's
in love and flowers pick themselves
20 years ago I had a little booklet of Cummings' poetry.
Loved it. I wonder where it went? Maybe the Moon balloon
sent out a small moon with happy people in it to take the
booklet and keep it safe for me. So I wouldn't lose it.
I'll see it again one day. Soon. ~ Michael
