I carry your heart

Today is National Poetry Day – it’s also my birthday and my wedding anniversary, so to celebrate I’m going to share with you the inspiration behind¬†two of my limited edition prints – I carry your heart – I did two because I love this poem so much. It’s by E E Cummings

I carry your heart with me I carry it in my heart
I am never without it
Anywhere I go you go, my dear;
and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling

I fear no fate for you are my fate, my sweet
I want no world for beautiful you are my world, my true
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

Here is the deepest secret nobody knows
Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;
which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)
