E.E. Cummings: "Who knows if the Moon's a Balloon?"


"1 who knows if the moon's
              2a baloon,coming out of a keen city
              3in the sky--filled with pretty people?
              4(and if you and i should

              5get into it,if they
              6should take me and take you into their baloon,
              7why then
              8we'd go up higher with all the pretty people

              9than houses and steeples and clouds:
            10go sailing
            11away and away sailing into a keen
            12city which nobody's ever visited,where

            13always
            14            it's
            15                   Spring)and everyone's
            16in love and flowers pick themselves"
