Ode to Spring - by e.e. cummings


 O sweet spontaneous
by: e.e. cummings (1894-1962)
 O sweet spontaneous
earth how often have
the
doting
 
fingers of
prurient philosophers pinched
and
poked
thee, 
has the naughty thumb
of science prodded
thy
 
beauty, how
often have religions taken
thee upon their scraggy knees
squeezing and


buffeting thee that thou mightest conceive
gods
(but
true
 
to the incomparable
couch of death thy
rhythmic
lover
thou answerest
 
them only with
 
spring)
