How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's
spring (6-9)

Notice how every phrase is joined by "and?" It creates the sense of being SOO excited by what’s going on that you’ve just GOT to share it all at once. That rush of urgency is something that our speaker seems to share with the youngsters he’s talking about.
