E. E. Cummings

E. E.  Cummings is my favorite poet. I recently bought a poetry book called Poem Crazy. I loaned it to an English teacher friend who still hasn't read it, two months later. It reminded me of a Cummings poem that makes me tear up every time I read it.

love is more thicker than forget

love is more thicker than forget
more thinner than recall
more seldom than a wave is wet
more frequent than to fail

it is most mad and moonly

and less it shall unbe
than all the sea which only
is deeper than the sea

love is less always than to win

less never than alive

less bigger than the least begin

less littler than forgive

it is most sane and sunly
and more it cannot die
than all the sky which only

is higher than the sky
