An E.E. Cummings Poem

Sunday, September 13, 2015

Always a bit of a sap for most things, literary works that find an arrow straight to the heart are usually bookmarked straight away for safe keeping. I sent this poem on yesterday to a friend looking for a wedding reading but sharing it here now makes me feel like it would be just as sweetly endearing to a friend welcoming a new child.  Not my usual type of post, but feeling all of the feels as of late.

A definite keeper.
I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart) I am never without it
(anywhere I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)
I fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) I want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true) and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you DSC_0005 here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart DSC_0003
I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)

-E.E. Cummings
