Synopsis

No. 21 in the 100 Poems project.

A setting of the eponymous poem by E. E. Cummings.

The text of this poem is identical to that used in the opening poem of Ten Poems by E. E. Cummings. Cummings, however, in this version of the text, formats the words such that columns are formed based on the vowel sounds of each syllable. This formatting is the same used in two brass buttons.
