Complete Poems, 1904-1962 - E.E. Cummings

Some disappointing aspects of Cummings' work: a poem that seems unavoidably sexist; repeated use of "nigger". I suppose everyone is of their time in some respects, even if they are extraordinary innovators in others.

A spate of good 'uns! I don't think of Cummings as a nature poet but here's one about a blue jay. Also the first poem I clearly remember from elsewhere: "maggie and milly and mooly and may."
