All in green went my love riding -- e e cummings

Guest poem submitted by VG:
(Poem #1536) All in green went my love riding
 All in green went my love riding
 on a great horse of gold
 into the silver dawn.

 four lean hounds crouched low and smiling
 the merry deer ran before.

 Fleeter be they than dappled dreams
 the swift sweet deer
 the red rare deer.

 Four red roebuck at a white water
 the cruel bugle sang before.

 Horn at hip went my love riding
 riding the echo down
 into the silver dawn.

 four lean hounds crouched low and smiling
 the level meadows ran before.

 Softer be they than slippered sleep
 the lean lithe deer
 the fleet flown deer.

 Four fleet does at a gold valley
 the famished arrow sang before.

 Bow at belt went my love riding
 riding the mountain down
 into the silver dawn.

 four lean hounds crouched low and smiling
 the sheer peaks ran before.

 Paler be they than daunting death
 the sleek slim deer
 the tall tense deer.

 Four tall stags at a green mountain
 the lucky hunter sang before.

 All in green went my love riding
 on a great horse of gold
 into the silver dawn.

 four lean hounds crouched low and smiling
 my heart fell dead before.
-- e e cummings
This poem begs to be recited, with its almost hypnotic rhythm and its
beautiful rippling phrases - 'dappled dreams' 'slippered sleep'. The scenes
evoked are dreamlike and misty, with the smiling hounds and the horse of
gold. I don't know how cummings does it, but whenever I read this poem I
give a deep sigh and go back to the beginning.

Not only does this poem beg to be recited but to be sung. Joan Baez does an absolutely haunting version of this poem, set to music by Peter Schikele.

Hello, I think your blog might be having browser
compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in
Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent
blog!

I've been browsing on-line more than three hours lately, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It�s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the web can be much more helpful than ever before.

Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine.
Please let me know where you got your design. Bless you
