As in all lower case, the letters fall
A loneliness of leaf through the air
A misty air ,an involuntary dancing.

It is air that makes a laugh and fall
And lose the letters in a lonely fall
Very comings going ,going, going.

Please keep laughing as letters fall,
I laughing at I-self, the leaf falling,
I from the upper case’s only letter.

Fall is only business lonely business.
The comings are all leaves together
But goings are only leaf, lonely leaf.

(referring to E.E. Cummings’ poem l(a” )
