i carry your heart with me

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

Hi :) I'm a big fan of your taste in poetry, and I check your website frequently. I'm always sorry to see that you haven't been able to post in a while! Hope all is well.

Belated thanks, Olivia! I've been busy with work this year and sadly haven't had as much time for poetry as I'd like. I've also just started to get going, and have been working for a little while on the content for that. This blog certainly isn't going anywhere, though, and I will always add poems I fall in love with as I read or remember them. Your comment means the world to me! I had no idea I had an active audience. :)
