In this poem we can detect two sections which are complementary: the part
in the brackets underlines the semplicity of his feelings, explaining them
with colloquial images; the other seems more essential. There is not
physical descpription, so it could be addressed not only to a woman, but
also to a beloved person. It is a love poem, which deals with pure and
universal love, because it could be applied to every circumstance. We like
it very much. We are going to read it at Anna's marriage.

this text is very interesting because we don't know if the speaker is a man
or a woman. We are only sure that this person is fallen in love with the
addressee and this last one is the foundamental element in the poet's life.
Even if they don't spend their time togheter, in their mind the lovers are
connected. Furthermore, the poem seems to be an interior monologue thanks
to the presence of a lot of brakets. In the end, we have noticed that the
addressee is compared to some natural elements and this aspect is very
romantic! :-)

The text is a love sonnet by e.e. cummings and the subject,even if there is
not a physical description that will identify her,is his beloved.In this
romantic composition all the poets's sweetness is described and he says
that,even if he knew that she is far from him,her heart will always be with
him.The power of love makes the poet fearless:no fate,no world could
frighten him until his love will be by his side.To carry the heart of his
own lover in his own heart is the only way which can make love real.

We think it's a nice poem but there are other better ones. When we read it
we feel bad because it makes us remember our girlfriends dead in a car
crush....sad thing!

Like everyone else I first her this in the movie "In her shoes", I to cried
and thought immediately of my relationship with my boyfriend who has made a
permanent mark on my life and heart. Than it hit me that this may be the
best gift I could give him since his 25 year old son may be in a coma
indefinitely and this poem defines his love for him. Never thought that I
would love poetry and now I am hooked!

This poem is dedicated to my Mother for whom felt this world was not longer
her own and decided to end her life to spare us of the burden. She was
wrong I would take that burden forever. I carry her heart in my heart
forever! Miss and love you MOM!

After losing two family members at once to an accident i struggled to make
sense of life. In one short poem it seems to be all there for everyone. I
will carry them with me as i always have, but e.e. cummings worded this
poem masterfully, describing how so many of us feel perfectly

I first saw this poem while reading the book In Her Shoes,it made me cry
because I miss my sister so much. My sister and I are 3000 miles and 10
years apart, but I can guarantee that if she showed up on my doorstep
tomorrow, we will be wearing the same thing, right down to the socks. We
are best friends, inseperable, I adore my sister, and while watching the
movie I cried like a baby because I could picture my reading this at her
wedding. So if she will let me, I want to read this when she marries her
fiance in July. Whattaya say Nik?
