I'm not very familiar with E E Cummings but I did attend a concert Friday night and one of his poems was performed set to music.....FABULOUS! This video isof a concert done two years ago......same song, same orchestra as the one I saw Friday. I have to be honest, Friday...
'i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows.'
And when I'm not feeling too good I like:
'if this should be, i say if this should be-
you of my heart, send me a little word;
that I may go unto him, and take his hands,
saying, Accept all happiness from me.
I love his quirky way of never using caps, allowing the reader to determine the breaks. I like him a lot and I can thank 1Sensualheart for my love of ee cummings. He used to share his poetry with me frequently and I came to love it.
i carry your heart with me ...

i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
if i love You(thickness meansworlds inhabited by roaminglystern bright faeriesif you loveme) distance is mind carefullyluminous with innumerable gnomesOf complete dreamif we love each (shyly)other, what clouds do or SilentlyFlowers resembles beautyless than our breathing...
