i carry your heart...

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)

e.e. cummings

Always liked ee cummings. Inventive application of creativity while yet remaining lucid enough for sense.

*sigh* darling, i wish i was allowed to start fights in your courtyard. anonymous, all i will say is: you may have repeated yourself once or twice or...yes, i think i could even make a case for thrice. ;oP


p.s.

The firelight glows,
The embers sigh,
We dream and
Doze--
The cat and I.
The kitten purrs,
The kettle sings,
The heart remembers
Little things.

If I remember not, it's all new to me. Fight away!

Oh, it was skillfully and purposefully done.

I love that little poem.
