Thanks all

I think "In Just" is perfect.  Puts mud in just the right context.  In just
a little bit it will be all of spring and the sheep can go back on the
pasture and the trees will glow with a green halo.  The crocus have already
decided that the ground is warm.  In just a while I will try to convince The
Wife of this new beautiful context for the mud I track in.  I have little

with eddieandbill and bettyandisbel who will understand

In Untermeyer's _Modern American Poetry_ (1950) it is called "Chanson
Innocent."  But I think it is usually anthologized as "in Just."

"In just-spring, when the world is mud-luscious"
e.e. cummings

Not the title (which was something like "just-spring').  I probably
didn't get the punctuation or capitalization right, as this is all
from an increasingly unreliable memory.
