This poem makes absolutely no sense what so ever and I donít know how
anyone considers this poetry. If this is poetry then I could basically
ramble any words I want on a piece of paper in any order I want and call it
a poem. If this is poetry then my 7 year old son is a master poet because
he can write a bunch of words on paper that make absolutely no sense. I've
read a lot of Cummings poem (in just, O sweet spontaneous, Buffalo Bill's)
and many others just because I had to see how stupid they were. They are
all jumbled up words in no particular order with a couple Thy's and Thou's
in them to make them sound like Shakespeare. If you want to read some good
poems I recommend looking up Theodore Roethke or Sylvia Plath. Sylvia Plath
has an excellent poem called Lady Lazarus. Now this poem is pure poetry, it
has plot, tone, attitude, imagination and syntax all the good things that
make up good poetry.
This comment is only my views and opinions of E.E. Cummings poetry; if
anyone has questions or comments for me feel free to email me at
