e e cummings


The Harvard-educated writer, who preferred to sign his name in all lower case, is known the eccentricity of the typography and punctuation he employed to reinforce the rhythm and meaning of words. His poems truly leap off the page when performed aloud. This program, which celebrated the beauty of the individual, is set in a re-creation of New York’s Greenwich Village, where e.e. cummings lived for nearly forty years.

As seen on PBS.

when faces called flowers float out of the ground
she being Brand-new
anyone lived in a pretty how town
nobody loses all the time
in Just-spring when the world is mud-luscious
sweet spring is your time
who knows if the moon’s a balloon
since feeling is first
lucky means finding Holes
Jimmie’s got a goil
come, gaze with me upon this dome
my sweet old etcetera
this little bride & groom are standing
Buffalo Bill’s defunct
fire stop thief help murder save the world (excerpt)
one winter afternoon
when serpents bargain for the right to squirm
of Ever-Ever Land i speak
the great advantage of being alive
sweet spring is your time
old age sticks up Keep Off signs
you shall above all things be glad and young
if everything happens that can’t be done (excerpt)
