who knows if the moon’s, poem by e.e. cummings

When I read e.e. cummings, I am never sure of the message which is great. This way the message can be different each time I read his poetry. Most of all the underlying theme is the uncertainty of life.

who knows if the moon’s
by e.e. cummings

 

who knows if the moon’s
a balloon,coming out of a keen city
in the sky—filled with pretty people?
(and if you and i should

get into it,if they
should take me and take you into their balloon,
why then
we’d go up higher with all the pretty people

than houses and steeples and clouds:
go sailing
away and away sailing into a keen
city which nobody’s ever visited,where

always
            it’s
                   Spring)and everyone’s
in love and flowers pick themselves
