Spring Poem for a Snowy Day



Tumbling-hair
picker of buttercups
violets
dandelions
And the big bullying daisies
through the field wonderful
with eyes a little sorry
Another comes
also picking flowers

This is a poem by ee cummings, an unconventional American poet who played with form, words, punctuation, capitalization, and anything else that could possibly be altered to make a more meaningful, expressive poem.
