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.

This is one of the most exquisite sonnets I have ever read. I know it by
heart. It is just beautiful, and so sweetly melancholy.

Listen to this poem as muscially adapted by John Cage and you will hear
true understanding.

I bet e.e cummings had really strange dreams. if i could go anywhere, it
would be e.e cumming's dreams.

I love this poem so much. After reading in through several times, I now
understand the greatness of this deep poem.
