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"

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