e.e. cummings' poems are not meant ot be seen as literal. He himself was a
man out of the ordinary and didnt see the world through the same way we do.
thinnk outside of the box and the poems will make more sense.

Silence is thus marble.

Roses
Roses are roses
Beautiful in every way,
They have many emphasis
On each and every day,
They are calisthenics
Who flutter at the say,
They are more beautiful then callipsis
Wich may have grown in cambrai,
roses are roses
And there is nothing more you can say.

It is interesting to see a poem about silence in e.e. cummings' collection.
Many of his poems defy reading aloud--can only be experienced on the page;
a complete contrast to the orignal intention of poetry, a form intended to
be aural. In a world so full of noise, it is a wonder to find such silence
as one finds, watching a pecking bird the moment before snow begins to
fall. I think this is as important as any literal meaning of the poem.
