A Truth Discovered

I feel the poem is simply a declaration of thankfulness and acceptance of a
truth he discovered(the existance of a supernatural Non-dependant being ).
Which is obviously proven through the senses.

If you have any doubts about this poem, listen to composer Eric Whitacre's
setting, which was recorded by Polyphony (among other groups). It'll take
the top of your head off. . .the sign of a real poem, as Emily Dickinson
said.

EE cummings capitalizes the god who indwells us all. The poem has an
interesting point. It could be read as a companion piece to Hopkin's Pied
Beauty. There is a choral setting of the text by Lloyd Pfautsch. It's a
religious poem. It relates to pure joy and love of nature; God being the
creative force he feels being in the presence of undeniable beauty. It has
a tone of irony. In the poem we're thanking god for all he jas done for
us. It reminds us to count our blessings in a way. It's a celebration of
life; it's about hp[e, faith, life, and love.

I am not buying the comment below by Pegah S. that there is an ironic tone
here. Though Cummings was a great satirist and certainly employed irony in
many of his poems, and even given his rejection of traditional faith, I see
nothing in this poem that does not relate to pure joy and love of nature;
perhaps God being the creative force he feels being in the presence of
undeniable beauty.

Cummings was an atheist...this poem isnt thanking "god", it is being
conveyed with a tone of irony....

I stl wonder y Cummings used such title case. Either than that its a
beautiful religous poem.. He couldnt hv said it better.
