This is what I believe the poem is actually saying. The letters are just
arranged in a wierd order.

"Black against white sky, trees which from dropped leaf a goes whirling"

what is cummings saying? that from black trees, wild leaves drop? does
wild loneliness fall from nothingness? or is it darkness?
