Good morning! Here’s a pick-me-up from my favorite poet of all time: e. e. cummings. (The first Poem for a Monday Morning from him is here.) Also he says “gay” in this one, so there’s that. Enjoy!
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)
