Hello everyone! It's been a while. And this time I bringing my sister in! (Under the display name of sunshinedare)
It took me a while to decide between this poem or I Saw a Jolly Hunter, but this time around, I decided to take the serious path.
My favorite Poem is Anyone Lived in a Pretty How Town. And I know, the actual title isn't capitalized, but I can't bring myself to not capitalize a title.
So, about this poem. It's hard for me to pin exactly what I like about it. It is, after all, a really weird poem. I really like the flow, I just get swept up in the rhythm and the odd wording.
The viewpoint is intriguing. It is not often you find a narrator so careless of human life. I actually do enjoy the way it makes me feel so insignificant. Personally, I get so caught up in ME sometimes, I need to be reminded of the "anyones" and the "noones".
This poem is by E. E. Cummings and I encourage you to read it if you haven't already.
