It made the cut in John Irving's latest novel at an interesting point- I
came looking for this poem. Fascinating.

I very much like this poem. But to Wayne: I'm female and I'm going to
pass this on to my lover. He can be under me and it won't be the
traditional missionary position. Poetry is for everyone, yes?

Mark Thompson, what do you mean? (Unless this was changed after your
comment?) The poem here reads as it does in "Complete Pomes 1913-1962."

This is one of my all time favorite poems. Beautiful! Very erotic and

now this is that which eyes wide,
tingled skin, side to side
calls the smooth, lips & grin to
call back to her first again.

check the word order in the second and last lines, the cummings' original
is DIFFERENT! Please change.

This poem is rife with imagery. The way that cummings attempts to put his
feelings of love and lust into simple words ("Muscles better and nerves
more") is so candid and loving--I absolutely love e.e.cummings.

This poem is absolutely beautiful and romantic. I highly recommend this to
anyone who loves poetry.

This is a beautiful poem and perhaps a little outdated in that E.E.
Cummings makes love to his wife in the missionary position...:)
