why do the fingers

why do the fingers
of the little once beautiful lady
(sitting sewing at an open window this fine morning)
fly instead of dancing
are they possibly afraid that life is running away from them
(i wonder)
or isn't she aware that life (who never grows old)
is always beautiful
and that nobody beautiful ever hurries

can't get enough of EE Cummings. I got his Complete Works for Christmas a couple years ago and it continues to be one of my favorite treasures. I cannot wait to start taking poetry classes in the spring! As of now, my poetry skills are N/A, just waiting to be developed.
