The poet is an admirer(the man)who has given me, the Princess, (the woman),
a beautiful gift - not just the words, but the sensual feeling. With it and
the beautiful words I go to meet my flesh-and-blood lover.
The poems are only dumb and ignorant servants - I have to seduce my lover
all by myself (with a little back-up from the servants).

ee cummings is in a cute way, congratulating himself here as well as any
reader who loves his work. he recognizes that a poem can make you, the
reader, feel beautiful and even regal and you walk out with the words, who
are (tall servants) but ignorant of your need of them. Nevertheless, they
"attend" you.

I think this is one of his more hopeful poems - admitting that even his
words are "tall, ignorant servants", just not enough as words can never be
to truly explain love, the way of a man with a maid, but his HOPE is that
they can enourage you to seek it - that one true love. Don't waste your
time with just the words, get on your way to a real relationship. Open up
and enter in- his words are ushering you on your way.

heres one of mine, A special world for you and i
A special bond one cannot see
it wraps us in it cocoon
And holds us fiercely in its hold
Its fingers spread like fine spun gold
Gently nesting us to the fold
Like silken thread it holds us fast
Bonds like this are meant to last...

While this poem does compliment the reader, I can't help but sense an
underlying pride -- not in a negative sense, but nonetheless present. The
first words are "if you like my poems", and then comparing those who like
his poems to "princess[es]" -- meaning that if you have taste enough to
like his poetry, you're high society. The reason for putting the reader
before his poetry is perhaps to show his appeal to people who're above him.
