Poem: if e. e. cummings  






if e. e. cummings

if in these drifting thoughts(sleep-scattered
or day-dissembled)there is intent
to seek or say, i would(you
and i)find sweet purpose and
the strength of all strengths
to tap in keystrokes and soft
dream words the bluest skies
    greenest meadows 
        richest earth
and all we know

we sing(now rise the chorus)the songs
and the dearest(loveliest)hardest(darkest)
shall flow forth to live among

   (now rise the chorus)

Very cool poem, nicely style-resonant without seeming imitative. :-)

Thank you! I don't know why the urge to write my official sign-up in the style of cummings came up, but I haven't tried him before, so why not?

Some of the punctuation is a little more irksome than I remembered-- not always easy to read. I added a space in one spot where he wouldn't have, but there were others that tempted me!

Thanks for reading. :)
