Book Challenge Day 17 – Favourite Poem

I used to read poetry a lot when I was younger and there was one poem that really stuck out to me. I loved it from the first time I read it; then it was featured in one of my favourite films – Candy.

The poem I’m talking about is ‘I Carry Your Heart With Me’ by E.E Cummings. It’s a warm poem about the eternal love one person feels for another. There is a sort of vulnerability to it and the narrator. Written in first-person narration makes it so much more personal and meaningful to the reader and also the person it’s intended for.

Here is the poem:

I Carry Your Heart With Me

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)
– E.E Cummings.
I think it’s so wonderful. It really struck emotion within me, and I think that’s the making of a truly, great poem.
Thanks for reading!
