monday words #1

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]

by E. E. Cummings

love is more thicker than forget
more thinner than recall
more seldom than a wave is wet
more frequent than to fail
it is more mad and moonly
and less it shall unbe
than all the sea which only
is deeper than the sea
love is less always than to win
less never than alive
less bigger than the least begin
less littler than forgive
it is most sane and sunly
and more it cannot die
than all the sky which only
is higher than the sky
