How rude!

You know it's often late when I make replies - or I'm still trying to wake up after only getting 2-3 hours' sleep! Genuine mistake. I used the Tennyson poem as part of my literature exam at school. : (

Reading e.e. cummings is like figuring out a puzzle. He is challenging.

I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.”

There was a young lady named smith
Whose virtue was largley a myth.
She said "Try as I can,
I just cant find a man,
Who it's fun to be virtuous with
