The poem "may i feel said he" is a sensually ecstatic tribute to love and a humorous salute to the mating rituals between men and women. Originally published in Cumming's 1935 "No Thanks "collection, "may i feel said he "is one of the poet's most original and best loved works.
Marc Chagall's floating lovers and violin-playing horses are the perfect complement to Cumming's whimiscal poem. Chagall's lyrical work always reflected the artist's fascination with the many facets of love. "Is it not true that painting and color are inspired by love?" he wrote in 1973, at the age of 85. The twenty-three diverse paintings in this collection include many works that have rarely been seen in public."
may i feel said he "is a stunning marriage of art and poetry and a giddy celebration of love.
