Seeing as Monday is usually a day when most of us could use a little pick-me-up, today I’m starting “monday words”. Good stuff to get you through the start of the week. It’s only fitting that we start with one of my favorite poets, e.e. cummings. He lived from 1894-1962, and wrote plays as well as painted. You can read more about him here. I’ve always like his poems because they usually are interesting visually on the page. He staggers words, often leaves out punctuation. They become something else altogether when read out loud. Each word has a purpose. Nothing is extra. The one below is bit more traditional in form. I hope it perks up your Monday.
[love is more thicker than forget]
