I have always been fond of February and remember reading poetry by E.E Cummings when I was younger. Did you know, he was ranked among the best love poets of his time and was in the habit of associating love as a subject, with the landscape, with the seasons, with the time of day and with death.
[ I carry your heart with me ( I carry it in) ]
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)
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)
Amazing, isn’t he? Do let me know what your reading preferences are during the month of February in the comment section below. For now, let us link up one poem.
I look forward to welcoming you on Google Meet.
