spring summer autumn winter
he sang his didn't he danced his did.
Women and men(both little and small)
cared for anyone not at all
they sowed their isn't they reaped their same
sun moon stars rain
children guessed(but only a few
and down they forgot as up they grew

E. E. Cummings worked beyond simple linguistic limitations. If nothing else, he expressed himself to the fullest and in doing so, is an inspiration to us all. Perhaps the biggest draw to his poetry is the mystery. His poetry can be viewed as nonsense and maybe rightfully so with such obstacles in understanding.
But I believe his radical style to be the attraction. Maybe everything in this world was not meant to be rationally understood.
