86. 1(a… (a leaf falls on loneliness): e. e. cummings

Out of curiosity I typed in “dumbest poem” and up came this. What fascinated me is that the poem was posted on a Florida Marlins’ fan forum under the posting “Dumbest Poem Ever”. See the post here. Why would someone drag a poem they hate into a baseball forum? This is another example of poetry finding its way everywhere.

Love or hate it, poetry gets a reaction unlike anything else you might teach. Revel in it.
