absolutely beautiful poetry, as you, I heard it this afternoon while
watching the movie, In Her Shoes. I write poetry so it instantly caught my
attention. He accomplished what all great art is about, his emotion is
captured in the words so that we also can feel this wonderful emotion.
Bravo to the screenwriter for including this poem in this wonderful movie.
ee cummings deserves to be acknowledged.

My agent Shelley sent this poem to me when my 5 year old girl kitty, Midori
died January 17. Dad went with me to lay her down from sudden cancer in her
stomach. Frost is still here, he was named after The Road Less Taken, by
RFRost. Anywayz. I cc'd Dad the poem after all this to share Shelly's
support for me during Midori's Kitty Hospice:). Dad died suddenly January
30. 2006. This poem by ee was placed at visitation, went with him at
cremetory, and was read agian unknowingly of the connection by the CheiF
(woman! Pam) cardilogy at the work celebration seremony.

My Dad, we built our house on rock.
M&D and I had lunch and outings everyweekend.
Girls of the World, make your realtionships with your parents what you
desire, you can change if you want, just do your best.

We had a great time Dad, and we still are. Cheers to The New World.

Only one word can truly describe this poem... BEAUTIFUL! I, just like the
other 260 people commenting, heard this poem on In Her Shoes.. and I cried
so hard. It reminded me SO much of my 3 sisters, but of my boyfriend as
well. I enjoyed this poem, because it never gave the reader a sense of 2
lovers, family, or friends (characters). I like this, because I can use it
for my 3 sisters.. or I can use it with my boyfriend. I was truly touched
by this poem. I have always like E.E. Cummings and I am so upset that I am
just now getting to know this poem.

I also heard this poem in the movie In Her Shoes. I plan on reading it
during my wedding instead of vows. It is one of the first poems i've ever
read that expressed the true love I feel for my fiance. It's a tear

Well, I am the same as everyone else. I just got finished watching "In Her
Shoes" and I started crying when Cameron Diaz read 'I carry your heart (I
carry it in my heart).' This poem is so beautiful. I usually do not like
poetry because it doesn't make any sense to me, but this poem did. It was
written so beautifully and it reminded me of my sisters as well, but it
reminded me of my boyfriend who is my 1st love-we have been together for
4years and 3months now and he is my best friend. I love him more than
myself and I truly do carry his heart in my heart. I think this would be a
great poem to read to your soon to be husband on your wedding day and I
might do that! I'm glad I heard the poem on the movie! Here it is:

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

E.E. Cummings

i became obsessed with the poem: I carry your heart with me, after seeing
the movie: In Her Shoes. It expressed for me the eternity of endless
love. It was so beautiful and far reaching - I cried and cried and cried
and searched everywhere for it because I didn't know the title of the poem.
I have it now, and will carry it with me always.

This poem deals with the importance of love because it satisfies all our
needs. To love a person means to carry his or her heart into our own. This
condition cancels every material problem since you find what you need in
your beloved. Moreover the link with love is the essence of everybody's
life,so it is the paramount thing in people's life.

Jake: The poem has a certain ambiguity to it. There is no physical
description of the lovers, which leaves the reader the ability to
personalize the poem. Another interesting thing is that the brackets
create two complete poems within one. If one reads only the text outside
of the brackets a new poem is formed.
Bob: The author wants to express that his beloved(unknown to the readers)
is something who is not only in him but who can embody the most wonderful
events of nature(moon...sun...sky...trees). She also surpasses them and is
able to reach a point deeper than the human mind and soul can.
