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!)
