Cummings is poet who loved to write romance poems such as, "it is at
moments after I have dreamed”. Visual imagery and personification is used
throughout, giving the readers better views of what the character in the
poem is illustrating. "-turning from the tremendous lie of sleep i watch
the roses of the day grow deep.", can be used as an example, this portrays
how easily you could lose the person you love, leaving you behind broken.
Cummings is a great poet using clear images in his works making them
enjoyable to read although he put familiar punctuations and tone aside.

Cummings attended Harvard, where his father taught before becoming a
priest, and picked up the techniques expressed in his poems. His style in
this poem is nothing, but a simple rhyming scheme. By rhyming the ends of
the lines in each stanza together, he portrays a compassionate relationship
in this love poem. The color white is used to show a pure and gleeful
relationship, and it is also appears that by his, "watching of the days
grow deep," something upsetting may also be present.

E.E. Cummings in "it is at moments after i have dreamed" is using his
little ad fluttery style of poetry to describe someone in love. This style
of three line stanzas and every other rhyme scheme gives this poem a fast
paced and light feel. Though the last two lines of this poem give it a
darker edge that might give the read some thoughts that maybe there is
something else something sinister about this relationship.

e. e. cummings a poet born in 1894 in Cambridge, Massachussetts, was the
son of a minister with a very religious background. This poem obviously
dealing with love, may be traced back to when he studied at Harvard; when
French Symbolism and free verse were major influences in American poetry.
cummings' was the prime example of Thoreau's "rugged individualism" in
poetry. This poem is written in a simple rhyming pattern instead of free
verse however.

Described as a romancer and a highly sentimental poet, E.E. Cummings
portrays a yearning for love and amorous relations in the poem "It is at
moments after I have dreamed". Studying art in Paris, and moving back to
New York to become a proclaimed poet, Cummings completed a collection of
passionate poems, including this particular romantic poem. "It is at
moments after I have dreamed" paints a picture for the reader, successfully
portraying the dream as a vivid and emotionally stimulating experience.

e.e. Cummings was a great poet. All the titles of his poems are writen in
lower case letters, which is a orginal look that everyone will reconize.
e.e. Cummings was verys talented and didn't really write professionally.
You can tell that he wasn't very professional becuase he didnt have tiles
to his poems and they were all in lower case. Cummings spent three months
in a French detention camp that help create some of his background and
experience. After that he went to Paris to study art, which helps with
writing poetry. Some of Cummings early poems discovered and original way of
describing the chaotic immedialy of sensicous experiences he had. As most
poets, he had a simplistic view of the world. As in this poem, he has a
very gleeful paicious tone in his poetry. Cummings also was very good
verbaly and visually.

This has been my favorite poem since middle school. I am now a senior
graduating from a university and about to read this poem aloud in front of
my poetry class today. I am about 10 minutes from where e.e. cummings was
born and raised, and have had a particular affinity towards him ever since
I read "g-r-a-s-s-h-o-p-p-e-r" which was introduced to me by my 8th grade
English teacher. This poem, to me, is by far his sweetest, most love-filled
and meaningful poem. Although not as abstract as his others, this poem is
vivid in imagery and, like Frost, makes "sense sounds" that make it sound
lyric and song-like.

E.E., when you wrote this, did you read me?

These words I've used to start my blog.

So what is this poem? Is it happy, is it sad? I haven't gotten it yet,
and would really like to!

I've read this poem many times, and every time I read it, I struggle with
deciding if it is a sad or a happy poem.
