e.e. cummings: Author of the Day

“I’d rather learn from one bird how to sing

than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance”

***

“may my mind stroll about hungry

and fearless and thirsty and supple

and even if it’s sunday may i be wrong

for whenever men are right they are not young”

***

“I imagine that yes is the only living thing”

 

i know nothing about ee. cummings except his words and face – i am incredibly fond of both.  not going to type his name into google and ruin the impression i have, name and verses floating space.

 

(this is a fitting author to leave off this Author of the Day business, as i have grown weary of it already. also this post makes number 5, so there you go.)

(ALSO – 100th post!)
