They both have a lovely disjointed rhythm, never rhyming, never quite balanced in the traditional way, but always splaying out smoothly.
Recently, I did a large linocut and posted it to my shop, my first that has been over 4 by 6 inches. It's very simple --a white tree against blue background, leafless and smooth-- but I like it, and I'm sure it won't be the last I do. I, of course, named it for part of a line from a e. e. cummings poem. Here is just the first stanza.
now all the fingers of this tree(darling)havehands, and all the hands have people; and
more each particular person is(my love)
alive than every world can understand
--e. e. cummings
And here is the linocut. And the link, of course.
