littl-ee love

e e cummings
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

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 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)

(painting "a heart on fire" nils von dardel 1888-1943)

  3. Beautiful poem, I loved it when Cameron Diaz read it in the film IN HER SHOES.
    A timeless message that truly conveys how one does feel when utterly connected to another.
    Perhaps it should be the official 'World Anthem' to be verbally spoken each morning in reverence as a prayer to remind ALL regardless of gender, religion or color...to LOVE.

  4. I love that poem. Thank you for reminding me of it. :) xo, N.
