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

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This is a beautiful poem and perhaps a little outdated in that E.E.

This is probably one of, if not, the best love poems I've ever read.
cummings has such an astounding vocabulary and such delicate phrasing,
absolutely beautiful.

this poem is one of my favorites... it's beautiful and sexual all at the
same time... erotic and playful and still almost thoughtful... cummings way
of writing leaves me breathless, again.
