EE Cummings Love Poems

Edward Estlin “E. E.” Cummings or simply known as E E Cummings is a famous American poet, essayist, and painter. HIs lyrics is especially popular among readers because the author’s poems are close to everyone with their positive messages.

“I Carry Your Heart” is one of the most world-known E. E. Cummings`s love poetry. It is about the feeling of deep, honest, and open feeling of true love which makes one’s heart beat quicker. Even the title speaks volumes because this metaphor shows the sweet attitude of the author towards his beloved. Her heart is his biggest value and precious treasure. This metaphor is so intimate that each reader understands how close this couple in their relationship is:

“I carry your heart with me (I carry it in

my heart) I am never without it (anywhere

I go you go, my dear.”

One thing Cummings did very well was finding eloquent words for describing his beloved. Females in his short poems are real muses who inspire even the reader who hasn’t seen this person. However, the description is so vivid that you can virtually fall in love with the character:

“thy forehead is a flight of flowers

thy head is a quick forest

filled with sleeping birds.”

Moreover, it is significant to mention that Cummings is connected with modernist free-form poetry of the twentieth century. The majority of his poems were sonnets, but they often included a modern twist. His works usually covered the topics of nature and love, but he also wrote about the relationships of a person with the society and the environment.
