fell in love with his poems and writing style during my high school years - especially his grammer usage a panther is like a leopard - except he hasn't been peppered........if ever you are called by an panther - don't anther.
cummings is among my favorites. at his best he is wonderfully and warmly (and sometimes slyly) human. my favorite poem by him is a sonnet that begins, i thank you, God, for most this amazing day... this poem, it seems to me, came from an experience of inspired clarity. this sonnet, along with hopkins' that begins, the world is charged with the grandeur of God, stand out as affirmations that the Creator is imaged in the creation- as God is in humankind. -glen kappy
