Prelude

by e.e. cummings

into the strenuous briefness
Life:
handorgans and April
darkness,friends

i charge laughing.
Into the hair-thin tints
of yellow dawn,
into the women-coloured twilight

i smilingly
glide.      I
into the big vermilion departure
swim,sayingly;

(Do you think?)the
i do,world
is probably made
of roses & hello:

(of solongs and,ashes)

Oh dear. Yeah, I realize it’s Saturday. The train left the station a day early! Said cavalierly. (Am I fretting? Yes.)
