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 the 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)
~ e. e. cummings

Beautiful….must go and find out more about Cummings….
That’s just the last part of the poem. cummings makes poetry look like play.
Isn’t that magical? And I agree with you that cummings makes poetry look like play. I think I fell in love with it during my rebellious teens.
I’ve always thought of cummings as a rebellious poet.
Thanks for dropping by, and for your comment.
