little tree

I think Alyssa forgot that the speaker is a child. That explains the
simplicity and the lack of some profound "commentary" on Christmas trees.
The child sees only the beauty of the tree and the decorations and the
shining moment they share. And we are reminded that we, too, can share in
this beauty by seeing the tree as a child would.

Elena may be thinking of the setting of this poem by Eric Whitacre. Like
all his work, this is a beautiful composition. You can hear it on youtube.

what is essential

how sad for alyssa to miss what is essential in the poem. It is invisible
to the eye.

Despite everyone else's praise for the poem, I find it to be the weakest of
E.E. Cummings that I have read. It's overdramatic in the images of the
ornaments and tree, and the conflicting images make an overall unsure poem.
The attitude on the Christmas tree in general is not seen.
