"i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes"
e. e. cummings
as a young man, e. e. cummings wanted to be a visual artist. when he began to write poetry, he retained his need to make the poems visually stimulating on the page. his poems often appear as chaotic as the natural world, like children skipping across the page.
