Poetry Friday: Celebrating an anniversary with e.e.cummings

Poetry Friday is hosted by Carol @ Carol’s Corner

Twenty seven years ago today, June 6th., I said no to wearing white, to being “given away”, to taking some one else’s name…but I said yes to marrying the best person I have ever known.  And this Poetry Friday, I celebrate that decision with e.e. cummings, whose poetry wove its way into many a letter in those early years…

[love is more thicker than forget]

By e.e. cummings

love is more thicker than forget
more thinner than recall
more seldom than a wave is wet
more frequent than to fail
it is most mad and moonly
and less it shall unbe
than all the sea which only
is deeper than the sea
love is less always than to win
less never than alive
less bigger than the least begin
less littler than forgive
(you can read the rest, and hear the poet himself,  here.)

  1. This is just to say that I have been here and read your words, but surgery on both thumbs last Tuesday prevents me from typing a personalized comment. Forgive me — copy/paste is the best I can do this week! 🙂

  2. ee cummings always gets it just right, doesn’t he? I am also celebrating my wedding anniversary tomorrow, 8th of june! 16 years of marriage. 🙂 All my love and warmest wishes, dearest Tara.
