since feeling is first

I have been reading and teaching this poem for over 35 years. It is simply
one of cummings most eloquent. The simplicity of it is the key - I would
suggest that the poem need not be textually analysed (for s/he) who pays
attention to the syntax of things will never wholly kiss you. Simply: love
wholly and purely; live for the moment of love; for tomorrow we die (death
is no parenthesis). Do not intellectualize love - live love - he was such
a romantic :)

life's not a paragraph: it's not short and doesn't have just one "phase"
"feeling"...

death i think so no parenthesis: death cannot be avoided/ignored...

This is one of the best poems ive ever read aside from 'anyone lived in a
pretty how town' i love the work of e.e. cummings. my fav line is "kisses
are a better fate than wisdom" i wish he were still around today to keep
putting out amazing poems like this but e.e. cummings will forever live on
in his work that he so gratefully left behind

My friend, theresa from United States. It is not a sonnet. Just had to
point that out. A sonnet has 14 lines, and several other qualities, but the
14 lines is the major one. This poem has 16.
