You can tell that E E Cummings met the love of his life. He met and loved
the one person out there that was for him. I've read a few of his poems now
and they are all so immotive. They are sexual, sensual, full of desire and
love. There is a surge of emotion when reading and for those who have met
their one true love that person is who you think of when reading

I really love this poem, and I just come to know of it when I watched "In
her Shoes" where cameron Diaz is in. It says to me that wherever one maybe,
there is someone in there, deep within them that is with them all the time.
Though they may be far apart, it is in their heart that they are one and
never alone. Truly beautiful!

This wonderful poem really touched me in a special way.That type of deep
love for someone comes only once in a lifetime. I really love this poem and
will think of a very special person everytime I read it.

I feel sorry for those that have posted and do not understand this poem.
Until a month ago, I would no thave understood it. I am 48 years old. I
have recently found the one person that can allow me to underrstand this
poem. I hope that each of you will find the meaning of this poem some time
in your life. It is such a wonderful thought that Mr. Cummings expressed.

The poem "I Carry Your Heart" by e.e. Cummings is short but sweet. It
expresses his deep love for someone or something. The Last stanza and the
last line rhyme. This creates an emphasis on the end of the poem, which in
my opinion, is the most important part of the masterpiece.

This poem by E.E. Cummings, is actually my sister and mes favorite poem. We
actually at one time both memorized it, because we feel it describes our
relationship perfectly.The flow and grammar used through out the peom make
it eady to follow and understand. We actually make copies odf this poem and
include it in every card we give to each other, just as a reminder of how
much we love each other.Over all i think its a great poem and it touchs a
lot of people.

What a lovely poem, it touched my heart. This is the way I feel about my
husband and my daughter. I carry their hearts in my heart. E. E. Cummings
expresses his love with such ease it brings me to tears.

Upon reading the poem "I carry your heart with me" by E.E. Cummings one may
get so consumed in the over all meaning of the poem that they may not pause
to notice the grammatical flaws.These grammatical flaws are done on purpous
by Cummings.The flaws include the fact that there are no spaces between the
main portion of the poem and the part in parentheses.One must believe this
was done to portray a sense of closeness, a sense of closeness in which no
space can seperate him and his true love.The first word in every line of
the poem is not capitalized.The information in the parentheses mimics that
which is not in parenthese,for example: the first line states "i carry your
heart with me(i carry it in my heart)..this gives one the visual
description of a heart within a heart.Further on in it he wrtes "i am never
without it (anywhere i go you go, my dear;and whatever is done by only me
is your doing my darling)"...this gives his love the credit and thus makes
his love responsible for his actions.He alter writes "i fear no fate(for
you are my fate,my sweet)i want no world(for beautiful you are my world,my
true....this demonstrates his lack of concern or fear for his fate and his
future, because he knows that both his fate and his future are with his
true love.
So you see, there are many aspects to this poem that do not appear to be
there when you first hear or read the poem.I love this poem and I dare say
that of all the poems I have read it is my favorite and I feel everyone can
realte to this poem because at one point in time one will have deep
feelings for another individual..(notice that in my comment I did not say
Cummings was reffering to a "she".For it is safe to assume this o be true
but we do not know this to be fact, as this poem can be dedicated to a
child,future husband/wife, past huband/wife,sister or brother or r anyone
that holds a special place in our heart...
That is all I can think of to write for now, but I encourage others to
critically read these poems..you may be surprised at what you discover and
better yet what you learn discover in return...:)

I read this poem a few days ago, and I have not stopped thinking about it.
It truly sums up how you feel when your heart has been captured - he must
have loved deeply to be able to write something so beautiful. Which is why
it will be read at my wedding on 1st September 2007.
