they sowed their isn't they reaped their same

Post to praise Serendipity's synchronicity and bump it gone so not taunt it and post for the Low song and Cummings poem and post to praise Fleabus, photo from last night, best cat ever, her death will crush me, the future of me and cats in question if we do spend half the year in Michigan with cat-allergic daughter and cat-allergic son-in-law and presumably cat-allergic grandchildren

[anyone lived in a pretty how town]

E.E. Cummings

anyone lived in a pretty how town
(with up so floating many bells down)
spring summer autumn winter
he sang his didn’t he danced his did.
Women and men (both little and small)
cared for anyone not at all
they sowed their isn’t they reaped their same
sun moon stars rain
children guessed (but only a few
and down they forgot as up they grew
autumn winter spring summer)
that noone loved him more by more
when by now and tree by leaf
she laughed his joy she cried his grief
bird by snow and stir by still
anyone’s any was all to her
someones married their everyones
laughed their cryings and did their dance
(sleep wake hope and then)they
said their nevers they slept their dream
stars rain sun moon
(and only the snow can begin to explain
how children are apt to forget to remember
with up so floating many bells down)
one day anyone died i guess
(and noone stooped to kiss his face)
busy folk buried them side by side
little by little and was by was
all by all and deep by deep
and more by more they dream their sleep
noone and anyone earth by april
wish by spirit and if by yes.
Women and men(both dong and ding)
summer autumn winter spring
reaped their sowing and went their came
sun moon stars rain

  1. 0)that's a beautiful bedspread [and a good looking cat too]

    1)the refrain of cummings' poem reminds me of

    a)a korean movie i've enjoyed, available at the county library - it has no subtitles, but this is not a disadvantage because it has no dialogue

    Spring, summer, fall, winter-- and spring

    1 videodisc (ca. 103 min.) A chronicle of the life of a Buddhist monk from childhood to the end of his days.
    MPAA rating: R; some strong sexuality.

    b)kurt vonnegut's sun moon star

    gordon e. hadlow's amazon review states

    A very short version by Vonnegut of the Christian Christmas story in a sort of poetry form with [Ivan Chermayeff's] art work. It is a very short read. I found it interesting and enjoyable, but I certainly wouldn't pay a lot for it.

    a very short read - how true - it takes vonnegut less than eleven minutes at the boston public library in 1980

    3)with regard the assertion that Canada is fake - my indignant riposte is - and i speak as a descendant of canadians, and as someone whose application for a certificate of citizenship by descent has been submitted to the processing center in sydney, ns -

    compared to what?
