    • POEM: 1(A... (A Leaf Falls On Loneliness) by e.e. cummings (3/26/2010 6:51:00 PM)

      Treating this poem as a Concrete Poem when I use it in my classroom, I have always shared my personal interpretations that:
      a) the poem looks like a leaf is actually falling from a tall tree- hence the tall poem
      b) the 'iness' at the end makes me feel that 'aloneness' that we call solitude
      c) how lovely it is that the word 'one' is directly over the letter 'l' which looks like a numeric one
      d) the loneliness is interrupted by the leaf falling, making the imaginary speaker of the poem (and the actual reader of the poem) follow the descent of the leaf as it falls
      This is truly my favorite cummings poem, and one of my favorite poems of all that I have read- as an English teacher for over a dozen years.

      How do we get Poemhunter to fix the poem, though? It should NOT be a numeric 1, it is definitely an L, but lowercase. I almost didn't find the poem because of how they have it published.
