CIRCLES IN NATURE

The theme of “who knows if the moon’s” I that our
imagination can take us anyplace we'd like to go. The
theme of “circles” is that we can observe magnificence
in ordinary everyday things as well as in our universe.

Esbensen repeats the phrases did you see, out and out
and out, and think of. The phrase out and out and out I
stretched across several lines. This adds to the meaning
of the poem because it actually shows the words moving
out. The phrases did you see and think of make the
poem sound like a conversation. The poet uses these
phrase to establish intimacy with the reader.
The narrator imagines the moon as a hot-air balloon taking him
and the reader up to a marvelous city in the sky where everything
is perfect. The example of the balloon is symbolic; it represents
our imaginations: the poet is telling us that our imaginations can
take us away; we are not as limited as we may think we are.

Cummings uses typography as well as punctuation to make
certain words and sounds seem longer. Esbensen puts words on
the page in such a way that they look somewhat like half circles,
like ripples of previous stanzas bouncing off the sides of the
margins. She also uses typography to visually represent the
outward movement of some circles in nature, particularly with
the lines that include out and out and out.
