now the eyes of my eyes are opened

April 24, 2011

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)

– e.e. cummings

A perfect Easter poem, right?

 

And here’s the perfect Easter song:

Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating today.

    My junior year English teacher in high school had us memorize that poem and say it together as an opening prayer for each class. At that time, it was obligatory and a little strange. Now I realize how cool that really was.
