Poetry: E. E. Cummings - i shall imagine life - in spite of everything - she being Brand... (XIX) - Links to his poems





i shall imagine life

is not worth dying,if
(and when)roses complain
their beauties are in vain

but though mankind persuades
itself that every weed's
a rose,roses(you feel
certain)will only smile 





 in spite of everything

in spite of everything
which breathes and moves,since Doom
(with white longest hands
neatening each crease)
will smooth entirely our minds

-before leaving my room
i turn,and(stooping
through the morning)kiss
this pillow,dear
where our heads lived and were.




 she being Brand... (XIX)

thoroughly oiled the universal

up,slipped the
clutch(and then somehow got into reverse she
kicked what

avenue i touched the accelerator and give

her the juice,good
