Sunday Morning Poetry

the first of all my dreams was of
a lover and his only love,
strolling slowly (mind in mind)
through some green mysterious land

until my second dream begins-
the sky is wild with leaves;which dance
and dancing swoop (and swooping whirl
over a frightened boy and girl)

but that mere fury soon became
silence:in huger always whom
two tiny selves sleep (doll by doll)
motionless under magical

foreverfully falling snow.
and then this dreamer wept:and so
she quickly dreamed a dream of spring
-how you and i are blossoming

~ ee cummings

Happy Sunday.

Love ee cummings, had his poems stuck up all over and around my dorm room in college, even started writing in all lower case (which did not go over well in all my classes). I am so glad you picked this poem for today, it's perfect ~ absolutely perfect. Hey and congrats on becoming a new aunt! Hope baby and mom are doing well. Love you and will see you 2morrow,me

I have been wanting to read cummings poetry for a while now, and after reading that lovely piece, now I really want to hit the bookstore!

ee writes some of the best poetry on love and human relationships. The tenderness and deep connections between people.

I love this line:
strolling slowly (mind in mind)

Isn't that amazing to have, a marriage of two minds?

Oldies, but Goodies
