i thank you god for this most amazing...

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)

  2. e.e. cummings is one of my favorite poets... but that stuff is so arbitrary... one poet speaks to me but will do nothing for my friend. I have a book of his poems I could loan you if you like.
