from me to 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

[drawing 'Papa, I'm Eating Waffles' 1899, Carl Larsson]

To all my bloggy friends--and you know who you are--

Happy Valentine's Day!

I love this e. e. cummings poem. I love its flow, softness, quietness - everything about it. When I say this poem aloud, it is like hearing a rhythmic hummmmm.

What a lovely poem. It reminds me of a poem written by a Resistance worker in WWII. I shall have to go and find it!
(My word verification is 'karesses' - isn't that sweet?)
