somewhere i have never travelled by E.E. Cummingssomewhere i have never travelled,gladly beyond
any experience,your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near
your slightest look easily will unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully,mysteriously)her first rose
or if your wish be to close me,i and
my life will shut very beautifully,suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;
nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility:whose texture
compels me with the colour of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing
(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands
somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond - e e cummings
Somewhere I Have Never Travelled, Gladly Beyond
Cummings is a five stanza free verse poem that does not conform to any distinct patterns of rhyme. There are a few instances of inclosed rhyme though, or that which happens within a line rather than at the end. Cummings is known for his radical rearrangement of traditional sentence forms and alteration of grammatical rules. This piece is no different. One is immediately struck by the format of the first line. A reader should also take note of the fact that Cummings does not utilize any final end marks in this work.
