I was given this poem by a man i knew only a week. I had been going
through a emotional time and was fragile. I've always been told I talk
with my eyes. Whenever this man is around me, he stays only 10 minutes or
so and it seems he has to leave my presence. He said his hormones start to
kick in. Does he love me or does he have lust in his heart? How am I to
know? I understand it all except for the rain has such small hands. To me
, he is saying, I have never met anyone like you and I could easily love

perfect combination with the song "The first time I loved forever"......
makes one see things in a beautiful perspective...

this is my favorite poem of all time, and i do believe it to be the best
love poem ever written; never mind poetic construction deviation-- love
simply overrides any convention anyway. listen to the poem being recited
while your eyes are closed... you'll know what i mean.

Really? A love poem? Well, I guess. But I always thought that it was about
witnessing the death of someone you love.

this is one of my favorite poems.cummings certainly know how to play with
words.a syntactical analysis perhaps would help one understand the meaning
of this poem.but to me,this poem is as mysterious as the rain's small

I thought it might interest some to know that the replication of this poem
is just a little off in it's printing. As with much of his work, Cummings
chose to override prescriptive grammar, and things like punctuation and
capitalization might appear incorrect. For example the first line reads:
"somewhere i have never travelled,gladly beyond" I think the deviation from
his original work is ignoring a central component to his art form and
creates something entirely different, like painting Mona Lisa frowning.
