it was amazing
Read in August, 2009

How can you describe the beauty of E.E. Cummings? There is no way to put into words the simply ecstastic way in which he writes. For people who can't stand some improper grammar - you probably won't be his biggest fan. It's an aqquired taste to be sure. His poems are full of ambition, idealism, sex, and fantasy. The words float off the page. Read them out loud to yourself. I'll be astonished if you're not completely moved by them.

"i feel that(false and true are merely to know)
Love only has ever been,is,and will ever be,So"
