This Poem is unbeleivable. It is the greatest poem I have ever read. It
leaves you with so much to think about. It can be interperted in so many
ways. The first time I read the poem I didn't understand it but i liked it
so much that I read it again and again and finally I came up with my own
interpertation of the poem. To me it is tellng you to live your life as
happily as you can with as many friends and as you can or else you will end
up dieing unhappily.

When I visualize this poem, I always think of two fairies, anyone and
noone. I think it is because the two seem tiny and insignificant, but
intricate and fascinating at the same time. The choice of language leads me
to fell they are both closely tied to nature, with the seasons, weather,
stars and birds an active part of their life. Take it with a grain of salt,
of course, but that's how this piece speaks to me.

An article for E. E. Cummings fans and this site's administrator to read:

"Decapitalization of E. E. Cummings"

Perhaps this site will take note and make the appropriate corrections.

this poem has a bit of a sad feeling to it, but it speaks the truth. often
no one and anyone are exchangable. i thought it was a ponderous poem; it
made me think.

This is my favorite poem ever! I wish I could be in love like no one and
anyone were. And for those of you who don't understand the poem... maybe
you should look a little closer at the words no one and anyone... It might
start to make sense. The poem is beautiful and I lvoe Cummings work!

I think that this poem was a poem that expressed a lot of emotions,and
love, yet rejection,and shame. It was a very strange poem, byt very
interesting at the same time.

This poem makes me think about how people ignore people who seem to be
nothing. Although, once they are not there anymore, people then notice what
they were missing out on in life. These two people, described as someone
and anyone, live an abnormal life style. Everyone else live the normal,
respectable life style, while this one couple is so different that they are
excluded from the comunity. People lead their boring, every-day lifestyles,
these peoople are out of the ordinary. I believe that this poem is telling
us that you should respect others differences in your community, often
times they can teach you how to live a happy, youthful lifestyle. Also,
that you sahould not ignore members of your community because if you do,
your community will fall apart. Therefore you need to be an active member
in your community, Getting all of hte people in your community to
paricipate in activities. It is very important to involve yourself in your
community so that you can have a full and exciting life.

I don't really get this Peom that much. Bt this Peom is really sad, because
he was alone all the time and no one ever loved him, when he died no one
stopped by to kiss him goodbye. So nobody cared about eachother as years
went by. as year went by people didn't care about each other. This Peom is
beautiful because it shows that it was a beautiful peom and he says in the
peom that the town was beautiful too, but bad things happen to. It is not a
perfect town. So this town is not a perfect town like we thought of it.

this is an interesting poem it makes sense if you think about it. Anyone
and noone are off doen their own thing and everyone else is doen the same
thing and living the average boring life. I like the way the author
describes time going by with the seasons.
