    • POEM: 1(A... (A Leaf Falls On Loneliness) by e.e. cummings (10/11/2007 8:19:00 AM)

      'a leaf falls' is embedded within loneliness; it interrupts loneliness. I imagine a person being lonely and confused, just as we are by the typographical dislocation of the words; yet as we process the poem, we make sense out of it, just as the lonely person might make sense of experience, converting what begins as 'loneliness' into 'oneliness'. A lonely person has separated him/herself from others, has perhaps been morose, but before it can become despair, he/she sees a leaf fall and an epiphany occurs about the subject's at-one-ness with creation.
