this is a really interesting poem. Does he die at the end or does he kill
his love? I am a bit confused.

this poem remind me of an old irish song about Molly Bawn. Her love
accidently shoots her because she looks like a swan while he is out
hunting. In this poem it seems his love went out for a ride in the woods
and was killed by a hunter as well, though not the narrator himself.

this is a wonderful poem. the hypnotic weaving of rhyme, rhythm, and
alliteration creates a religious effect a la the celtic bards. this poem,
either consciously or unconsciously, represents a classic testimony to the
power of love as embodied by the Triple Moon Goddess of ancient lore. i
expect robert graves considered this a "true" poem. to me, this is
cummings' best technical effort, and my second favorite among all his

What is romantic about the poem is not the hunting scene but, rather
Cummings's richness of color, internal rhyme, and alliteration. The message
of the poem is tragic...

The title of Mr. Cummings's poem is not "All in green went my love riding."
It is actually "All in green my love went riding."

I found this poem in my Lit. book, and it has become one of my favorites!
e.e. cummings is truly a master craftsman! He has become my third favorite,
behind Emily Dickinson and Edgar Allen Poe

Kinetik "tableau vivant" of a hunting scene.
In the last verse, the deer and the lover become one slained by the arrow
of the beloved one.
Something medieval about the poem....

One of my favorite love poems - for years I wore all green - hoping that
someone would recite the poem to me, and I would go off with him without
