Think about the poem not only for the love in a passionate way but the love
of a parent, I put this poem into a letter for my dad telling him how much
i really loved him. And when he read it, that was the first time i saw him
cry.

I guess we all decided to watch In Her Shoes this week...

E.E Comings poems is one that perfectly puts into words the emotions felt
when your hearts skips a beat at the sight of a certain person, or when you
yearn to be with someone JUST to be in their presence, or even the simple
feeling you get in your gut when you discover that HE is the one....

E. E. Comings perfectly defined love... Brilliant

This is possibly one of the most beautiful poems ever written by one of
the greatest American poets who ever lived.

It is emotionally stunning, simple and pure- and very very emotional.
So beautiful !

This poem carries such beauty. I heard it last night whilst watching 'In
her shoes', it seems to express every emotion possible is just a few lines.
I am totally in love with a man that has no idea how i feel, this just
sums my feelings completely-I wish i could tell him how i feel. For now it
has to be my secret.

to those who listen and listen carefully, the words make sense, to those
who just read, they are just words.

Sorry, this is a bit of a tangent, but does anyone know of a book of
cummings poems that includes this one in particular? Really want to give
it as a gift, but can't seem to find one. A title, ISBN, etc would be
fantastic!

You've probably figured it by now, but it seems as if the movie "In Her
Shoes" did a lot for this peom. I just finished watching that movie on
demand and I paused it so that I could write the poem down. What a
wonderful arrangement of words to express love with...and oh how many
situations it could be used in.

Doctor Who takes three prizes at the National Television Awards in a
repeat of its success last year...

I first heard this poem in the movie In Her Shoes. It reminds me of the
special bond my brother and me share. We are best friends, we laugh, we
fight, but in the end he's always with me and I'll always stick with him.
This poem is stunning because of the portrayal of love, it can be veiwed as
a romantic love or as a love for one's own family. Cummings awed me with
this poem.
