    Default A poem

    Somewhere I have never travelled

    somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond
    any experience, you eyes have their silence:
    in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
    or which I cannot touch because they are too near

    your slightest look will unclose me
    thouhg i have closed myself as fingers,
    you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
    (touching skilfully,mysteriously) her first rose

    or if your wish be to close me, i and
    my life wish shut very beatuifully, suddenly,
    as when the heart of flowers imagines
    the snow descending carefully everywhere descending;

    nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
    the power fo your intense fragility:whose texture
    compels me with the color of its countries,
    rendering death and forever with each breathing

    (i do not know what ii is about you that closes
    and opens;only something in me understands
    the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
    nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands.


    Does anyone know who this poem is written by?

    Google says it's E.E. Cummings.

    I guess that makes sence since the handwriting is poor as usual. Damn poetic license...

    Heh, yeah thanks, it is E.E. cummings. It's a very beatiful poem, is it not? I believe the gramma is pretty trivial, compared to the overwhelming feeling given by the poem, and it's author. I'm also thinking about putting it into a love letter of sorts, or maybe reading it to a female that I feel very deeply for.

    I didn't read it. All I did was copy the first line and did a goggle-I'm-feeling-lucky search. You are a very lazy bum.
