Another of e.e. cummings' pomes

mr youse needn't be so spry
concernin questions arty

each has his tastes but as for i
 i likes a certain party

gimme the he-man's solid bliss
for youse ideas i'll match youse

a pretty girl who naked is
is worth a million statues 

e.e.cummings, 1926


  1. That reminds me of something.
    I just wish I could remember what it was.....

  2. Oh re Cummings is a genius I must get a book of his poems. I had forgotten him somehow

    1. e.e cummings was, I think, a wonderful poet, and delighted in being just a little shocking. This poem, written in a witty vernacular, no doubt shocked some of his day.

      If you liked it, then might I recommend an earlier post?
