The World is Waking Up

“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 of 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)”

  1. I was first introduced to the writings of e e cummings when I was in high school, by my English Lit. teacher. I have ever since been fascinated with his poetry. Love the pictures you chose to put along with the poem.


    • This poem is my favorite of his writing. I like that he wasn’t afraid to try something different and write whatever he felt even if it was unconventional. I took the pictures during a walk around the block the other night. Things are just starting to green up and I want to capture photos of the seasons and they change into each other.
