ABC Wednesday - E is for E. E.Cummings

It's ABC Wednesday and E is E. E. Cummings for me.

I'll be brief this time. Although I definitely don't agree with his political choices (he was a Republican and fan of McCarthy), I love his poems, as they translate feelings and emotions with a delicate accuracy that speaks to my soul.

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)

To read another cool E entry, visit my love and favorite author, at Under An Outlaw Moon (his adventure novel Doc Wilde and The Frogs of Doom is currently on sale to celebrate Valentine's Day)!

I love how you share literature. EVEN those with politics different from yours!

Nydia said...

Thank you, Roger! Most times it is possible. :)

A very poetical man for a politician!

Thanks for your visit. The modern cruise ships are like a small town with shops and a cinema or theatre.So it is absolutely not boring.

My concern is not really getting bored, but spending days without seeing land. I would enjoy to spend some hours like that, but it's weird to think about it in terms of days. ;)

I love his poetry too. I didn't even know about his political choices but I'm used to everyone being more conservative than I am. Carver, ABC Wed. Team

Loved that poem as I've loved some of his quotes. It expresses such deep emotion.
