Quote:

e.e. cummings
anyone lived in a pretty how town
(with up so floating many bells down)
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
autumn winter spring summer)
that noone loved him more by more

when by now and tree by leaf
she laughed his joy she cried his grief
bird by snow and stir by still
anyone's any was all to her

someones married their everyones
laughed their cryings and did their dance
(sleep wake hope and then)they
said their nevers they slept their dream

stars rain sun moon
(and only the snow can begin to explain
how children are apt to forget to remember
with up so floating many bells down)

one day anyone died i guess
(and noone stooped to kiss his face)
busy folk buried them side by side
little by little and was by was

all by all and deep by deep
and more by more they dream their sleep
noone and anyone earth by april
wish by spirit and if by yes.

Women and men(both dong and ding)
summer autumn winter spring
reaped their sowing and went their came
sun moon stars rain

What?  :smile:
I'm not really a fan of poetry, but the style used in some lines to was kinda cool.

Don't try to figure Gomp out until you know him.

This poem rocks. :thumbup:

" All that lives was born to die"-Anom.

With much wisdom comes much sorrow,
The more knowledge, the more grief.

Viaggio:

I wrote a detailed analysis of this poem in college, so I would be happy to explain if desired.

Ice:  Yes, it is one of my all-time favorites.  This is saying a lot since I spent years immersed in poetry.  :cool:

thats one of the many poems i like...


back on topic:

it depends on how you define dead people. If you define them as physical chemical compositions, then no, not really. If you define them as internal abstractions and personalities within one's mind, then yes.
