e. e. cummings poem for spring

“sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love

(all the merry little birds are
flying in the floating in the
very spirits singing in
are winging in the blossoming)

lovers go and lovers come
awandering awondering
but any two are perfectly
alone there’s nobody else alive

(such a sky and such a sun
i never knew and neither did you
and everybody never breathed
quite so many kinds of yes)

not a tree can count his leaves
each herself by opening
but shining who by thousands mean
only one amazing thing

(secretly adoring shyly
tiny winging darting floating
merry in the blossoming
always joyful selves are singing)

sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love”

― E.E. Cummings

Happy St. Pat’s!

Hi Richard, Mike and all you streeters! Happy St. Pat’s from here in NYC where the parade is in full swing, and the city is more nuts that usual. Case in point: I just came in from walking Sparky and either was the victim of an attempted mugging, or two really weird men were so drunk that they had the appearance of scammers on these lovely streets. Long story short, after running into me while I was walking the dog three times, the younger one hit me so hard on the back that I can still feel it, and it is a credit to working my core exercises that it didn’t knock me to the curb. I would guess drunkenness, but I was under a block long scaffolding that obscured the street, and after finishing my neighborhood walk, the same two guys were now coming the other way, even though I had walked blocks in four directions. Millions of tourists are in the city today, so I suppose the crimes of opportunities are way up? Ah, New York! So Happy St. Pat’s! It was their bad luck to pick a Chicagoan. 😉

RichardSailing1:7:16I love this photo of Richard, just like I am enjoying the pic Richard put up of Sue (see pic of the day!) Clearly, the neighborhood kids are celebrating, and looking good doin’ it! How is 2016 going for you?

Politics or Pets? Choose Your Discussion!

sparkyDonaldTrump&Dog Well, since my Mom and Mr. Brown put up opposing lawn signs (HHH and Nixon, respectively), we know that good neighbors can respectfully disagree. The 2016 election is off to a rollicking start, with Trump getting lots of screen time, and quieter candidates jockeying for position. Opinions? If you wish to steer clear of debate, here are pet pics. The first is Sparky our dog (taken yesterday) and the second is Trump with a dog look alike (although that is the breed of his actual dog, Spinee, who is recovering from surgery!)
