Buttercups

This is not about picking flowers idiots. This poem is referring to the
Greek myth in which Hades finds Persephone picking flowers and abducts her
into the Underworld.

In the Era in which cummings wrote,Death was referred to as God's gardener,
a tender of souls. You can find many references in children's tales around
that time.

This poem is about care-free, unaware life that is about to get cut short,
just like the flowers that are being picked at her hand.

i don't think that's the point of this poem. i think the reason the second
person's eyes are "a little sorry" is probably because the first person was
just enjoying the field of flowers there first, alone. i don't know if he's
making a statement about killing flowers. *shrug* just my take.
