I discovered this poem when I was 14 years old in jr. high school & instantly began a life-long love affair with e. e. cummings.

It's brutally hot & dry here in the swamp.  When I water my plants, dragonflies come & drink right out of the hose!! I'm looking forward to the 2nd full moon (Blue Moon) this month in a few days.

Dreaming of Autumn,
Marion

MY PEEPS: I've recently had issues with my comment section due to harassment by 'anonymous', but I think I've got it worked out. If you tried to comment in the past few weeks and couldn't, I sincerely apologize because I love your input. Sorry for the word verification, but it's the only way to stop the spamming/harassment!  xo

Cool poem; I haven't read any e.e. cummings in years. It's really hot and swampy humid here, too. Alas, I'm not attracting any dragonflies when I water my plants.

So sorry to hear some jerk has been harassing you and glad you've got it under control.

SJ!!! I'm so glad to see you! I got my hands on Cummings' "The Complete Works, 1904-1962" and fell for him all over again. So sorry to hear it's hot and humid up in the mountains, too! I think August is going to be a real doozey. (Oh, my high electric bill!) Stay cool & remember you're still a Princess. ;-) xo
