E.E. Cummings Poems

in Just

my love is building

Buffalo Bill's

O sweet spontaneous

since feeling is first

 


O sweet spontaneous
earth how often have
the
doting

         fingers of
prurient philosophers pinched
and
poked

thee
,has the naughty thumb
of science proded
thy

     beauty     .how
often have religions taken
thee upon their scraggy knees
squeezing and

buffeting thee that thou mightest conceive
gods
       (but
true
to the incomparable
couch of death thy
rhythmic 
lover

        thou answerest


them only with


                        spring)
