Sunday Sentence: The Complete Poems of e. e. cummings

Simply put, the best sentence(s) I’ve read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary. Note: This week, I’m bending my own rules and posting not one, but three sentences I loved from the poetry of e. e. cummings I read this week, from three different poems. Consider them my Christmas gift to you.

The moon-lit snow is falling like strange candy into the big eyes of the
little people with smiling bodies and wooden feet

hard thick feet full of toes

*     *     *

The little moon
pinks into insignificance:a grouch of sun gobbles the east

*     *     *

       Do you believe in always,the wind
said to the rain
I am too busy with
my flowers to believe,the rain answered

from The Complete Poems, 1904-1962 by e. e. cummings
