Cummings seems to always unententionally bind the reader into trying to
figure out his poety. But I believe it is not meant to be figured or read
in a way that YOU are "making up." Since the poem is titled "Snow," then I
believe Cummings is trying to get across the appearance of snow and maybe a
few words here and there.

Look at it as snow on the page. I imagine the "words" in capitals are
anagrams, but I'm not quite sure.

Most of what Cummings did wasn't meant to be read conventionally, so don't
worry about that too much.

I think this poem is very wierd. I mean, it just babbles out a few words
that sort of make sense, and has over 3 titles. I just dont get it. Maybe
one of you guys could help me out here? Also I love America, even though I
love Canada more ;D

I think that this poem is very strange eh. When i first saw it, I wasnt
sure it was even poetry! But after reading it over again, i saw some words
that made sense. Now I like this guy's work! Yup, this poem is awesome!

Reading a poem like this reminds me of reading music. The words are all
there, just chopped up to make a rhythm. The lines written ALL IN CAPITALS
are a different voice to the rest of the poem, which is interrupted by the
other lines; it would probably take 2 or 3 people to read this aloud.

Yes I would like to comment on the last persons comment. I am first
confused by the question of whether this poem is gay or not... should this
not be an !!! ? Just curious as I am not from america.... And also I
think that you should not judge others poems because they are obviously
good enough to be published so HA! That is all, thank you america.

I think the author is trying to give emotion to the everlasting beauty of
American society. He uses different methaphors which vigorously help the

that's the beauty of cummings! he wants you to stare at it and stare at it.
i see almost all of his work as a wonderful puzzle. "cruising whisper" look
at his words like little visuals... like an artsy film that almost makes
you want to cry and laugh at the same time.
