somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond

somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond


by E. E. Cummings

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(5) Tree Line

This poem might be a tougher hike than some because of Cummings's cutting-edge, experimental techniques, but its familiar subject of love makes it accessible for most. Bring a bottle of water, a granola bar, and a pair of sturdy boots, but there's no need for an oxygen tank.
