my prayer

may my heart always be open to little
birds who are the secrets of living
whatever they sing is better than to know
and if men should not hear them men are old

may my mind stroll about hungry
and fearless and thirsty and supple
and even if it's sunday may i be wrong
for wherever men are right they are not young

and may myself do nothing usefully
and love yourself so more than truly
there's never been quite such a fool who could fail
pulling all the sky over him with one smile

~e e cummings


I hope y'all had a good Valentine's Day. Mine was wonderfully spent with my Sweetie.

I love e e cummings! One of my favorites:

i thank you God for most this amazing day
for the leaping greenly spirit of trees;
and a blue true dream of sky
and for everything which is natural
which is infinite
which is yes

(the rest of the poem is breathtakingly lovely too)
