The books are back!

In celebration of the fact that I no longer have to rummage through ten shopping bags, shrieking for my Penguin Poems for Life, here’s one of my favourites.

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday;this is the birth
day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any-lifted from the no
of all nothing-human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

e.e. cummings

The babe and I drove to work (very) early this morning on empty roads and under clear sky and against the sound of an excellent concerto, so we’re having a blue and greenly day ourselves. If it’s not sunny where you are, let e.e. cummings create one for you.

Happy weekend!
