3nJj9i Strange but true. Your resource is expensive. At least it could be
sold for good money on its auction!....

Cummings never welcomed the original. He never created amazing poetry with
the sparkle of the inventive and the crazy cool. Cummings never constructed
a poem with borderline absurd statements that tickled the minds of readers,
like, "hornets wail by children stung," and, "hopes dance best on bald
man's hair." :)

Cummings is unarguably one of the most playful, inventive, original,
idealistic poets to ever exist since the birth of poetry. Although some
would say that in this particular piece, Cummings had simply expanded on
the concept of loving hate and sweet sorrow. Where's the originality? But I
think that his style and ideology in themselves are beyond extraordinary.
Cummings had only borrowed a sprinkle of Will's oxymoron essence to put in
this poetic recipe to create something truly and completely his own.

I absolutely cannot get enough of this. Every single line is an aphrodisiac
for me. 'long enough and just so long will being pay the rent of seem'; 'as
hatracks into peachtrees grow'; 'down shall go which and up come who';
'deeds cannot dream what dreams can do'...

But ultimately,

time is a tree
this life one leaf
but love is the sky
and i am for you
just so long
and long enough

Just to give an honest opinion, this classic poem is a prime example of
what the average human being is missing. Only after truly listening to
what the poem is saying can there be understanding. Too many of our
brothers and sisters have just become too lazy to take the time or energy
to hear what is being said, to see the beauty hidden under the rocks.
