Deeds of Green Thrilling Light

I had planned on posting ee cummings’ poem “I carry your heart”, but then my irritating friend Javen Tanner did.

So I am posting “i have found what you are like” instead. On the day that I’m supposed to think about and cherish my beloved, I simply do what I do every day: feel grateful.

I think about my dear Annie, my dear sweet one, every day. I would rather her kiss than anything.

i have found what you are like

i have found what you are like

the rain

(Who feathers frightened fields

with the superior dust-of-sleep. wields

easily the pale club of the wind

and swirled justly souls of flower strike

the air in utterable coolness

deeds of green thrilling light

with thinned

newfragile yellows


-in the woods





And the coolness of your smile is

stirringofbirds between my arms;but

i should rather than anything

have(almost when hugeness will shut


your kiss


Happy Valentine’s Day.
