Here is a poem I really enjoyed reading by a poet we’re covering.
anyone lived in a pretty how town
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 What I really liked about this poem was the clever naming of the characters, "anyone" and "noone" I wrote a pseudo intro paragrpah to a paper I would write about this poem
In the everyday life of the everyday person they eat, work, sleep, and repeat. They traverse life monotonously; but when they lie on their deathbed, all they can remember are the dreams and hopes they had. The ones they loved and lost, and all the joyous and sorrowful times. Their lives were not measured in hours, months or days. Their lives were measured in moments. In the poem “anyone lived in a pretty how town” by e. e. cummings, the poem is communicating the message that in everyday life, everybody goes about their business and that no one loves anybody. However, the poem also conveys a nostalgic love story of a man name Anyone and a woman named Noone. Despite the ethereal breaks that convey the omnipresent finality of time, the combination of the two messages creates the theme that life is fleeting and that joy, sorrow, dreams, hope, and love make life worth living.
