Poem: ee cummings, ‘i thank you God for most this 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 eyes of my ears are awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

e.e. cummings

I’m feeling a little sorry for myself at the moment. This poem always cheers me up. And it’s almost spring.
