Cummings While permanent faces coyly bandy scandal of Mrs. N and Professor D Visions of Never Being Heard from Again I stopped by to see you but you were not home marshland the pure vision my ancient lives all risen up and rising shudder in my bed to come up against a living religion; they get offended so easily; blow up your hundred-foot Buddha no problem.

Analysis of Poem "somewhere i have never travelled,gladly beyond" by E.E.Cummings
In his own words, "Nothing measurable can be alive; nothing which is not alive can be art; nothing which cannot be art is true: and everything untrue doesn't matter a very good God damn" Cummings, A Miscellany Revisited. Love is complicated. We mean really complicated. Sometimes it makes you feel awesome. Sometimes it makes you feel like something you might find at the bottom of your garbage disposal. What's amazing about " somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond" by E. Cummings is that it takes all the extremes of love into account and somehow finds the beauty in them.

Both the highs and the lows are part of the appeal for the speaker. Now, maybe you've never been in love although chances are you will be someday. Even if you've never experienced romantic love, though, chances are you love something or somebody in some way. Maybe it's your parents, or a friend, or your dog, or some Zen-like mixture of yogurt and toppings at Pinkberry. No matter what it is, there're highs and lows, and this poem manages to capture the un-capturable way that there's beauty in both.
