my absolute favorite cummings poem. it sooooo sums up the first time with a
new lover. i already have one of his sketches tattooed on my calf and may
get this poem inked on as well. i have thought of this poem when i've been
with certain lovers and would love to have one think of it when with me.

This sums up how i feel about the man in my life; he surprised me by
knowing it too. This is the most sensual, loving poem ever to have been
written; nothing to beat it in its imagery. Subtle it is not and is all
the better for it.

it is being in love/lust/life...sensuous passion for things physical, while
engulfed within soul.
a brilliant heart, this poet had/has... he inspires me,

Sent to my late husband while he was on active duty in the army, this poem
still rocks my soul after 40 years! The lacy copy sent to him was found in
his personal belongings years after sending it to him when we were oh, so
