At first we were very confused by this poem. After looking at the poem
again, we were able to guess what it meant. We figured that Anyone and
Noone were people, and from there we were able to understand the poem. It
rocks!!! We decided even though its kinda weird, we like it.

I have taught this poem to 2nd, 2rd, and 5th graders. It is simply my
favorite poem. Once as a final leeson on the last day of school, I was
reciting this gorgeous poem to my class and I was so caught up that I broke
down emotionally . . . just as my principal walked into my classroom! She
said not to worry, that kids need to see that poetry can move a grown man.

Mrs.Bangert, this is practice:
I like how it makes me think. I like having to decifer it, and how it lists
the times of year. I'll get more into it with lit terms and what not after
I make sure this will work.

Megan,
Read more carefully before you go off on someone.
David, I totally agree.

i believe this poem to be amazing. Most of his work is extremely sexual,
(this one only alludes to it somewhat,) but what he says about love and
life. The people who can get something from his creativity and allow it to
inspire and change them are truly blessed.

I read the poems of cummings to my children when they were just tads. They
loved them, especially this one and in just spring. Then I found his Fairy
Tales. Perhaps there are many adults who "down they forgot as up they
grew" but my children understood and thanked me for giving them the gift of
cummings.
