A Quote by 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)

A Quote by e. e. cummings

Humanity i love you because you
are perpetually putting the secret of
life in your pants and forgetting
it's there and sitting down

on it

A Quote by e. e. cummings on gratitude and trees

i thank You God for most this amazing
day; for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes.

A Quote by e. e. cummings on bird, sing, stars, and dance

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance

A Quote by e. e. cummings

all which isn't singing is mere talking
and all talking's talking to oneself...

Humanity i love you because you are perpetually putting the secret of life in your pants and forgetting it's there and sitting down on it and because you are forever making poems in the lap of death Humanity, i hate you

A Quote by e. e. cummings on fearless and curious

may my mind stroll about hungry and fearless and thirsty and supple
and even if its sunday may i be wrong for whenever men are right
they are not young
