e.e. cummings






sonnet entitled how to run the world) 

A always don't there B being no such thing 
for C can't casts no shadow D drink and 

E eat of her voice in whose silence the music of spring 
lives F feel opens but shuts understand 
G gladly forget little having less 

with every least each most remembering 
H highest fly only the flag that's furled 

(sestet entitled grass is flesh or swim 
who can and bathe who must or any dream 
means more than sleep as more than know means guess) 

I item i immaculately owe 
dying one life and will my rest to these 

children building a rainman out of snow
