up's the word.


if up's the word;and a world grows greener
minute by second and most by more--
if death is the loser and life is the winner
(and beggars are rich but misers are poor)
--let's touch the sky:
                  with a to and a fro
(and a here there where)and away we go


it's brains without hearts have set saint against sinner;
put gain over gladness and joy under care--
let's do as an earth which can never do wrong does
(minute by second and most by more)
--let's touch the sky:
                  with a strange(and a true)
and a climbing fall into far near blue

-e.e. cummings poem 95
