O Sweet Spontaneous

I find it interesting that cummings chose to describe the earth as "spontaneous" in the first line of the poem, and death as its "rhythmic lover". I would have thought that death was the more spontaneous of the two, and earth's rhythmic cycles are the very opposite of spontaneous.

prurient philosophies pinched
Is this an alliteration?
