Looked up the whole thing

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for leaping 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
of all nothing -- human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened.)

-- e.e. cummings

People are 'artsy" in various ways, some are writers, some are painters, some are designers..., hers is culinery.

At the time I was forced to read things like this in high school english classes, I thought that e.e. cummings was full of himself.

But if it resonates with me fifteen years later, it must have been a success with me!
