"Feeling is First" - A Poetry Anthology

This book originated from a website collective called "All Poetry." That site is a place for poets to come together and share their poems. The success of online poetry editing and feedback has resulted in this book of profound modern poetry, that is enjoyable by both established poetic critics and casual poets. This is a poetry anthology by authors from many different countries and backgrounds, who are some of the best authors online today, featuring over a hundred poets. It was not confirmed but it is believed that the title of the book comes from e.e. cummings poem titled "since feeling is first." It is a remarkable collection of poets showcased from the underground movement of poetry! You are sure to love it!

since feeling is first
e.e. cummings

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don't cry
—the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids' flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life's not a paragraph

and death i think is no parenthesis.
