Life is not worth death, if death is meaningless and without beauty.
Mankind persuades itself that every life is just a death waiting to happen,
and death awaits with a mischievous smile, without beauty.

A friend recently gave me the most profound and insightful analysis of the
second verse of this poem:

There are those that will settle for less than the best they can do and
convince themselves that a weed is a beautiful as a rose,

and the rose will only smile.

As long as you see the beauty in what you do…

1. stanza: even if all beautiful things must die, cummings persuades
himself that life is still worth living, still beautiful while it lasts

2. stanza: mankind likes to believe that even a bad life is beautiful, but
is ignorant, really, of the beauties of the afterlife, which he assumes, is
smiling down upon us.

He is being sardonic.

Adam from Austria
