Words by Edward Estlin Cummings (e. e. cummings), who lived from 1894 to 1962

i thank You God for this most amazing

day:for the leaping of 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

all of nothing–human merely being

doubt unimaginable You?

===

(now the ears of my ears awake and

now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
