‘72’ by E.E. Cummings

The following is another poem from E.E. Cummings that I enjoy, and I hope you do too.

i shall imagine life

Is not worth dying,if

(and when)roses complain

Their beauties are in vain


but though mankind persuades

itself that every weed’s

a rose,roses(you feel

certain)will only smile


– taken from 95 Poems (1958)
