e.e. cummings (Edward Estlin Cummings) was born October 14, 1894 in the town
of Cambridge Massachusetts. His father was a
profeser at Harvard University. He left that in 1900
to become the Ordaned Minister of a church in Boston.
e.e. cummings loved his childhood in Cambridge
very much; which inspired him to write poems that include:
you shall above all things be glad and young, and in just.




i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

This is another sonnet by e.e. cummings. Many people enjoy his
sonnets without noticing thats what they are. The rhyme sceme for this particular poem is A,B,A,B,C,D,C,D,E,F,E,F,G,G. It is hard to find the rhyme sceme, because rhymes words like
"where" with words like "fear". This poem is apparently a love poem. This poem uses many similies and metaphors.

This is one style of poems that e.e. cummings rarely writes.
I think it is refering to the number one. First, the 'l' in the beggini-
ng looks like a one. Secondly, 'a' is the first letter in the alphabet.
Also lonely, or alone refers to one, whether it be one person, or one. Last the seventh line says 'one'.
of anything. There is no apperent rhyme sceme.

“next to of course god america i
love you land of the pilgrims’ and so forth oh
say can you see by the dawn’s early my
country ’tis of centuries come and go
and are no more what of it we should worry
in every language even deafanddumb
thy sons acclaim your glorious name by gorry
by jingo by gee by gosh by gum
why talk of beauty what could be more beaut-
iful than these heroic happy dead
who rushed like lions to the roaring slaughter
they did not stop to think they died instead
then shall the voice of liberty be mute?”

This is a sonnet poem "next to of course god america i" written by e.e. cummings.
In my opion the overall message of the poem
is that he has a lot of faith, and companionship in our country;
which it basically says. The rhyme sceme is: A,B,A,B,C,D,C,D,E,F,E,F,G. This poem uses similies.
