E.E. Cummings

In one of the songs, Sun in My Mouth, I’ve only created the music for e.e.cummings’ verses ; I found his poetry in a bookshop and I liked its euphoric humbleness, it’s a state of mind that fascinates me. Most of the things that cause euphoria end up becoming grandiloquent, but it doesn’t happen with e.e.cummings. He always remains humble.
