ee cummings poems

i too love this poem and the premise is so profound may might should could
would must) have i done everything i must? it is an eternal question.....
i also have several of cummings books, and he does use capital letters
quite frequently, not so much in the way we have learned grammar, but
subtly, and in the same way he uses punctuation, more to call attention to
his thoughts and ours

e.e. cumming and capital letters

cummings did in fact use capitalization quite (well, poetically) throughout
his poetry. Pat Soifer, needs to read some cummings, then edit himself. :)

e.e.cummings use of capital letters

e.e. cummings NEVER used capital letters in his poems. Not for effie or
himself, Whoever put this version of cummings' poem up knows little about
cummings. This editor needs editing.
