    Here's another of my favorite poets (one of my very favorites among the Modernists) , for whom I have not as yet listed a favorite poem - because of copyright restrictions and because some of his best are not included in the PH list; e.g., 'pity this busy monster, manunkind, ' 'i thank You God for most this amazing, ' 'maggie and milly and molly and mae, ' 'in Just..., ' 'Buffalo Bill's, ' 'next to of course god america i, ' 'anyone lived in a pretty how town, ' and many, many others - even the perfectly obscene and perfectly amusing 'the way to hump a cow is not.' Or if you want a bit of political activism with your dingy(if not dirty) humor, you might try 'F is for foetus(a, ' For example, '(and the wholly babble open at / blessed are the peacemakers'; or '.......it's / freedom from freedom / the common man wants.' This may not be my favorite cummings poem, but those are some of my favorite cummings lines.

Fame Speaks

Stand forth,John Keats! On earth thou knew'st me not;
Steadfast through all the storms of passion,thou,
True to thy muse,and virgin to thy vow;
Resigned,if name with ashes were forgot,
So thou one arrow in the gold had'st shot!
I never placed my laurel on thy brow,
But on thy name I come to lay it now,
When thy bones wither in the earthly plot.
Fame is my name. I dwell among the clouds,

[Hata Bildir]
