Happy Birthday Gerry!

we are so both and oneful
night cannot be so sky
sky cannot be so sunful
i am through you so i
"Sweet Home Indiana"
. . . for two more months!

but if a living dance upon dead minds
why,it is love;but at the earliest spear
of sun perfectly should disappear
moon’s utmost magic,or stones speak or one
name control more incredible splendor than
our merely universe, love’s also there:
and being here imprisoned,tortured here
love everywhere exploding maims and blinds
(but surely does not forget,perish, sleep
cannot be photographed,measured;disdains
the trivial labelling of punctual brains. . .
Who wields a poem huger than the grave?
from only Whom shall time no refuge keep
though all the weird worlds must be opened?

by E. E. Cummings (1894 - 1962)
[ellipses in original]

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
-- all the way to Virginia!

Shout out to Molly & Andrew --
because I learned the "living dance" poem at your wedding!
