“the spring has been exquisite,” by e.e. cummings.

faked by Saturday, May 7th, 2005


the spring has been exquisite and the
summer may be beautiful. But,
tell me with eyes quiteshut
did you love me,will you love me

and perfectly so forth;i see,
kissing you—only kissing
you(it is still spring
and summer may be beautiful)shall we

say years? O let us say it,girl
to boy smiling while the moments kill
us gently and infinitely.

And believe(do not believe)there’ll
be a time when even these leaves will

crawl expensively away. My lady.

by e.e. cummings.
