POEM OF THE DAY - "a pretty a day" by E.E. Cummings

E.E. Cummings

certainly qualifies for this weeks Famous Poets series...and he fits the bill for our requirement of writing poems "left of center"!

For some reason I think of a psychedelic 60's Sunday afternoon...don't know why.


a pretty a day

by E. E. Cummings

a pretty a day
(and every fades)
is here and away
(but born are maids
to flower an hour
in all,all)

o yes to flower
until so blithe
a doer a wooer
some limber and lithe
some very fine mower
a tall;tall

some jerry so very
(and nellie and fan)
some handsomest harry
(and sally and nan
they tremble and cower
so pale:pale)

for betty was born
to never say nay
but lucy could learn
and lily could pray
and fewer were shyer
than doll. doll
