La Guerre (5) ee cummings


La Guerre

V

O sweet spontaneous
earth how often have
the
doting

fingers of

prurient philosophers pinched
and
poked

thee
,had the haughty thumb
of science prodded
thy

beauty         ,how

often have religions taken
thee upon their scraggy knees
squeezing and

buffetting thee that thou mightiest conceive
gods
(but
true

to the incomparable
couch of death thy
rhythmic
lover

thou answerest

them only with

spring)
