The eight unpublished poems of E. E. Cummings included here were found by his daughter as she was completing the manuscript of this book.

After a day spent incognito with her at the Montmartre fair, just before her parents' divorce and her fifth birthday, E. E. Cummings wrote in his notebook:

goodbye dear & next time when I feel a little better we'll ride
on the donkeys and next time on the pigs maybe or you will a
bicycle and i will ride a swan & next time when my heart is all
mended again with snow repainted with bright new paint
we'll ride you and I

She wanted to ride the swan.
