This poem is about loves strong desire just for a kiss. When Cummings
compares his love to the rain he is saying she makes it easy for him to
sleep at night, just like the rain falls lightly upon the fields. He goes
onto say she is exciting, comparing her to the swirling wind and fragile,
like yellow lurches. The whole poem is based off of nature, every word
bringing a new element to life, just as the womans love brings a new part
of him alive.

george, i kinda agree with what you are saying about us not understanding
what ee is trying to exlpain. but your acuzations are not entirely true.
when reading this peom, not all girls are crying and eating a tub of ice
cream. some are just reading his poems out of bordem. and i know for sure
i'm not crying because big girls don't cry. but really you have no right to
say to a women to lose 30 pounds and do community service. you should lose
30 pounds. i bet your the one crying and eating a tub of ice crem. but
don't assume things when you have NO idea what you're talking about.

None of you have a f*cking clue about what ee cummings is attempting to
describe in this poem. Stop acting like its all beautiful and captivating
and sh*t because all of you are stupid a** loser fat f*cks who can't find
someone to love you so you read these poems while you eat ice cream and
cry. Get up, lose 30 pounds and do some community service or something.
Go do something with your lives.

This poem is incredibly simple on the surface. But in reality it speaks
huge amounts on life, love, and how the world is reflected back on us.

I think this poem has more meaning to it that goes beyond what the eye can
see and i think it means that he can see beyond what anyone else see in
the girl.

i have found what you are like
the rain,

(Who feathers frightened fields
with the superior dust-of-sleep. wields

easily the pale club of the wind
and swirled justly souls of flower strike

the air in utterable coolness

deeds of green thrilling light
with thinned

newfragile yellows

lurch and.press

-in the woods


And the coolness of your smile is
stirringofbirds between my arms;but
i should rather than anything
have(almost when hugeness will shut
your kiss

Unfortunately the version of this poem presented on this website is
actually the incorrect layout (it is left justified).

The original poem was staggered in places and the style he was noted for
was this staggered 'ad hoc' style. It's a shame this website has butched
the style he was known for.
