Shoe Thursday: Spring edition

Missy by Kate Spade
Missy by Kate Spade
"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
(1894-1962, American poet)

Wonderful poem. Wonderful shoes. And since they're not white, one is permitted to wear them before Memorial Day!
