by: e.e. cummings (1894-1962)
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little
whistles far and wee
and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's
when the world is puddle-wonderful
old balloonman whistles
far and wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing
from hop-scotch and jump-rope and
Mud-luscious, but not in Los 'Mos this morning.

Ketchup covering the earth.
The afternoon cartoons were another source of merriment. Mighty Mouse would urge us to "hold on to your seats as we blast off to this and all of your favorite cartoon stars!" So Chuckie and Bobbie would grab their butts and crack up.
Hold on to your seats!
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

The Origin of Baseball
Someone had been walking in and out
Of the world without coming
To much decision about anything.
The sun seemed too hot most of the time.
There weren’t enough birds around
And the hills had a silly look
When he got on top of one.
The girls in heaven, however, thought
Nothing of asking to see his watch
Like you would want someone to tell
A joke – “Time,” they’d say, “what’s
That mean – Time?”, laughing with the edges
Of their white mouths, like a flutter of paper
In a madhouse. And he’d stumble over
General Sherman or Elizabeth B.
Browning, muttering, “Can’t you keep
Your big wings out of the aisle?” But down
Again, there’d be millions of people without
Enough to eat and men with guns just
Standing there shooting each other.
So he wanted to throw something
And he picked up a baseball.
