Keylime Pie

From my heart, I must admit I find this poem so beautifully expressive of
the nature of keylime pie - snow is an extended metaphor for the cream that
melts so gently when consumed - those pauses only represent more clearly
the sharpness of the lime cutting through your emotions as it does through
the cream.
I must applaud E E Cummings for encapsulating such a fantastic and
tantalising desert within the metaphor of the substance that is frozen
delicate drops of hydrogen, hydrogen and oxygen.

This is even harder to read than "L(a"! I love it anyway. Poems like
Cummings' show that you don't have to have rhyme or reason to be poetry.
His poems caputure the true essence of what he's describing, without
perfect structure, or rhyming words, or verbose analysis. "Snow" is
wayward, tumbling, jumbled, flurried. I haven't yet seen a snowfall that's
perfectly in line. But a snowfall doesn't have to be structured to be

Guys, this is concrete poetry. Concrete poetry expresses the meaning of the
poem through the physical appearance of the poem. Since this poem is about
snow, the poem describes the movement of the snowflake. It descends, while
moving left and right.
