I guess it's brilliant. Full of mysteries. But at the end of the day, it's really up on us on how to decipher the meaning. But. It's fun. :)

Grasshopper.
Who as we look
up now gathering
into a T,
he leaps
arriving to
rearrangingly
become grasshopper.
I never liked how E. E. Cummings made up words. Example; rearrangingly. A verb rewritten to be an adverb.

This is a good poem, jsut give it time and do you best to analyse and undertsand its meaning, you will be surprised bacouse it contains a lot, and the poet has his own way of seeing things and describing the nature and the world around him.

i am only 12 years old. it took me 20 minutes to figure this out. you bigger people (im not talking about everyone, just some of you) that dont even consider trying to be helpful, i hope you can find a way in life. it might be hard for you considering, i wouldnt want to spend any of my time with people like you. people that dont try, will never successfully move forward in life.
the rest of you...
I LOVE YOU AND I LOVE E E CUMMINGS

e. e. cummings \"r-p-o-p-h-e-s-s-a-g-r\" was a terrible piece of literature. The time that it takes to decipher the meaning of this \"poem\" is not worth the effort.

ugh. who writes poems about grasshoppers?? oh well, lyk im any better . . . but, sorry i dont really c any inspiration in grasshoppers. in fact, they were used in the bible for plagues . . . stupid homework. but i have to say this s real creative.

im only 13 so its not great but...\"Grasshopper. Who as we look up now gathering into the leaps arriving to rearrangingly become grasshopper\" is a poem about growing and adapting in life, also how we define ourselves as a grasshopper is not a grasshopper untill it leaps hence why grasshopper in the arranged form comes at the end. it is a metaphor of life and the change and complexity, finding the right path. the way the grasshopper almost grows to eventually become a true grasshopper is another representation of life. the format is a grasshoppers complex path inforced by puncctuation, emphasising the movements of a grasshopper. also if you turn the poem side ways it looks like a grasshoppers legs and body... kind of.
i think it is a good poem but a little unclear for my liking though i suppose that represents the unknown in life and mystery of the future. :)

For you who say this poem is garbage, just look at all the works you have published. Maybe one of you? You should not critique so hard. He was making this poem to appear like a grasshopper was jumping using words, letters, and random punctuation. Stop being so harsh. It is rude.
Someone else analyzed it as:
\"Why is the grasshopper named what it is? The grasshopper is not truly what
it is until it leaps into the air. This poem deals with how things are
defined. Until it jumps, the insect that cummings makes the subject of
this poem is just a r-p-o-p-h-e-s-s-a-g-r - it is undefined in the sense of
its name. The world comes together only when the definition is complete -
hence why \"grasshopper\" only comes at the end.. \"
I think this is the best response so far for this poem. You need to look at the poem as it was originally x

hi hi! spent an hour just to decode this dumbass stupid poem. has no message and it is really puzzling. where the hell did e.e cummings get these idea? tell me!

| Posted on 2012-02-21 | by a guest


.: :.

This poem is weird i\'m only looking this poem up for a school project i think e e cummings should have maj=ke more sense on the other hand. I think this poem is about the grasshopper umping around
P.S. E. E. Cummings is a cool/weird/depressing/poet

this is what i think the poem means (by the way I\'m 11 and you big people can\'t seem to get it):-
grasshopper who as we look up now grasshopper gathering into at The one e A! p:s arriving. gRrEaPsPhOs)to rearrangingly become grasshopper . but some of the parts i could not understand but at least i understood most of it unlike some people. no offense to any one I\'m not saying that any one is stupid

What complete and total garbage.
It is an attempt to confuse and convey in a pretentious nature, wherein only the poet and those so enlightened are wise enough to understand its masterful illustration of the movement of the insect within the typographical diarrhea presented.
Instead of conveying a true sense of movement using word-craft he takes a cheap ploy, worthy of modern marketing, of misdirection and intentional misinformation to so obfuscate any real meaning that the effort required to \'decode\' is hardly worth the \'payoff\' of the verse itself.
The unobscured words utterly fail to provide any impression of energetic activity so trickery is masqueraded as cleverness in an attempt to hide the failure of the poet at his craft.
One would find far better prose from the ingredients list of the average breakfast cereal than this tripe.

I think it speaks to the reader about nature and how at some times you just have to look at situations from a different angle!

It is indeed about conforming to the world around you. I really isn\'t to much of a stretch to make that assumption when you read it, especially knowing the genius Cummings was.

OMG thanks so much guys!!! i had to do this for school and yall helped a lot (or at least some of you) anyway i got al the big words like gathering, rearrangingly, etc. but yall really helped with the part that says like \"he leaps\" and i thought arriving was supposed to be striving. Thanks soooo so so much!!! lUv u a(ll

This poem is about a grasshopper jumping. The blurred text is mirrors the green blur you see when a grasshopper leaps. The texts sparse middle represents the peak of the jump All is stabilized when the grasshopper lands. EE Cummings is fascinated with nature. What makes this poem great is that it causes is to look at something as simple as a grasshopper jump with marvel and awe.

who, as we look now,
up-gathering into a T,
he leaps,
arriving to rearrangingly become
'Grasshopper' "

Weird poem, yet very deep. It has a lot behind it when you think about it.

At first I had no idea what any of this evern meant. As far as I could see the only word in her was grasshopper. But now that I've looked deaper into this I realize the meaning behind it all. e e cummings wanted you to not only read a poem but to be part of it, he wanted you to see how something so indescribable can still seem to make sense. It represents you becoming yourself and how the journey takes work, just like finding the meaning takes work, but in the end when you find yourself, or the meaning of the poem, it's beautiful.

This poem is so amazingly deep. It makes you look into yourself and realise that no matter how much you try to change and comform to the rest of the world, you always going to come back to you.

are you kidding me? this is an amazing poem!
"Grasshopper. Who as we look up now gathering into a T, he leaps arriving to rearrangingly become grasshopper"
the poem captures the image of how throughout life, a person spends their life changing themselves and comforming to different ideals and only once they find who they are
they rearrangingly become themselves
this poem is NOT an ugly tarnish on the great career of e e cummings
this poem is hope
this poem is life
this poem is discovery
this poem will forever be
e e cummings

.: Hi :.

This "poem" is an ugly tarnish on an otherwise respected poet's carreer. It is a fine example of what NOT to do in poetry.
