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)
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
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
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
~ E.E. Cummings
How could you write a more perfect poem than that?
Congratulations to Tessa! She is one of the winners of the Shakespeare’s Lady ebook contest. I’m waiting to hear from one of the other winners before I announce it.
Oh, by the way. Who else is avidly listening to the new Mumford & Sons album? I swear I listened to Awake My Soul four billion times. So far, I fear much the same from Babel (loving).
Whose poetry inspires you?
