Happy St. Valentine's Day

open your heart:
i'll give you a treasure
of tiniest world
a piece of forever with

summitless younger than
angels are mounains
rivery forests
towerful towns(queen

poet king float
sprout heroes of moonstar
flutter to and
swim blossoms of person)through

musical shadows while hunted
by daemons
seethe luminous
leopards(on wingfeet of thingfear)

come ships go
snowily sailing
perfect silence.
Absolute ocean

E. E. Cummings

I found this at library and then ordered it as a gift. E.E. Cummings is one of my favorite creator of love poems. This volume includes the standards since feeling is first and somewhere i have never traveled. It is ostensibly a children's book with the images from the artist Christopher Myers accompanying the poems. While I am not certain the poem may i feel is appropriate for children at least they left out the boys i mean are not refined and i sing of Olaf glad and big. Someone has compiled an extensive no-frills archive of many of his poems here.
