Poetry Happening Near You

lower case recommendation

Today's recommendation is eecummings

This is another recommendation for a poet who is well-known, but not necessarily read very often - e e cummings.Sometimes people find e e cummings' poetry difficult, because of his highly original and experiimental use of punctuation and newly-coined words, but I would say read several; read them aloud and let the words wash round your tongue; feel them! I like his love poems (try I carry your heart), but they are all worth a look at. You'll find lots on the Internet.
