Spring is like a perhaps hand
( which comes carefully
out of Nowhere ) arranging
a window, into which people look ( while
people stare
arranging and changing placing
carefully there a strange
thing and a known thing here ) and

changing everything carefully

spring is like a perhaps
Hand in a window
( carefully to
and fro moving New and
Old things, while
people stare carefully
moving a perhaps
fraction of flower here placing
an inch of air there ) and

without breaking anything.

( E.E.Cummings, 1923 )
