e.e cummings, yes is a pleasant country
I am a 10 years old girl. I was reading this little poem because I am home from school with a cold. It took me a little bit to figure it out what it meant. But when I did I wrote it down and hear is what I thought about the line:
"both is the very weather"- it is winter and spring but it is either, it is LOVE
violets can appear in both winter and spring and represent LOVE

I think that Cummings has discovered a side of love that has brought a season of renewal in his life. Isn't Love the answer to it all? But the love between a man and a woman is just a part of a more complex system of a universe filled with the love of a higher Being.

I have to write an essay on cummings and I'm using this one to show how he reconciles his Pantheistic and Romantic viewpoints into one poem... it is in essence a love poem but uses images of nature that show his pantheistic influences... I hope. It's the only one I can find that seems to have both in it so hopefully it'll turn out all right. I do like that first line though.
