Spring is like a perhaps hand - e.e. cummings

Spring is like a perhaps hand
(which comes carefully
out of Nowhere)arranging
a window, into which people look(while
people stare
arranging and placing
carefully there a strange
thing and known thing here)and

changing everything carefully

spring is like a perhaps
Hand in a window
(carefully to
and fro moving New and
Old things while
people stare carefully
moving a perhaps
fraction of flower here placing
an inch of air there)and

without breaking anything.


Edward Estling Cummings (1894-1962) used a break with traditional form, spelling, punctuation and syntax to create a new means of expression.

  2. I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's
    еqually educative and amusing, and let me
    tеll you, you have hit the nаіl оn the heаd.
    Thе pгoblem is something not еnough men аnd
    womеn are spеаking intelligently аbout.
    Nοw i'm very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
