may my heart always be open to little

e.e. cummings

 Next Poem          

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 whenever 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

    Man, just read "may my heart always be open to little", again after all these years. Reminds me of simpler times. Still beautiful, still strikes a chord even though I'm just studying it.
