dear haters who are as deep as a small puddle

E.E Cummings is the man, for anyone who says this is the most absurd thing
they've ever seen and 'u' are stupid if you enjoy this poem, man, you must
have wax in your ears, wrong frequencyyyy, might as well get off this
website. Literally- read between the lines.imagine- You're sitting in the
grass, you see something leap, blades of grass tremble, then subside, it
jumps again! A cricket? It can't be. No movement for atleast ten seconds,
and as it leaps for the third or forth time, it Rea(be)rran(com)gi(e)nly
,grasshoper,



Suck it, this is beautiful

Hello. The freethinking of one age is the common sense of the next.
I am from Germany and also am speaking English, tell me right I wrote the
following sentence: "He is a state-of-the-art, other nothing with a
effective metabolism who is much cowed utilizing an foxglove."

Thanks for the help ;), Robi.

Cummings is a part of the Imagist movement. They believe that a theme or an
idea can be conveyed in just one image. Everything is the poem is meant to
emphasize the one image, which in this case is the grasshopper hopping. He
wants to give an image of a grasshopper actually bouncing across the page,
which is used to emphasize his idea.

I am doing a research paper on E.E. Cummings, and when i first saw this
poem I thought that my computer was messed up. Now I realize the amazing
thought that went in to construct this poem. Cummings really did paint a
picture for me and I loved decoding his message!
This is truly one of my favorite poems!
