‘I Carry your Heart’ by E E Cummings



One of my favourite poems by E.E.Cummings:

I carry your heart with me
I carry it in my heart
I am never without it
Anywhere I go, my dear, and whatever is done by only me, is your dong my darling.

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 thats keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart
I carry it in my heart.
