I think this is one of the best ever written poems... I heard it in the
movei in her shoes and started to cry becuase of its beauty (can you say
that?)
Thank you for this beautiful poem...

I think it's fabulous that so many people have been moved by this poem,
whether they have been introduced to it through film, radio, tv or
literature. Whatever. I cannot stand highbrow snobs. Get a life!

Not everyone has had a benefit of the background, or education which
exposes them to such things. Really all that matters is that we get
it/appreciate it when we do see it, isn't it?

If it encourages 100 people to take out a poetry book in their local
llibrary or search for it on the internet, or it inspires them to write
themselves, whatever. Isn't this an accomplishment?

I've read with interest the varying remarks re this poem surfacing for some
thru the movie "In Her Shoes". I am 50 yo and enjoy poetry. Have I read
every poem ever written? No. Will I read every poem ever written before I
die? Doubtful (though I'd like to try). Who cares the avenue that
enlightens us: film, friend or (gasp!) the internet, as long as we are
enlightened.

My son took his own life this year, and I have found it difficult to put
into words my love for him, even though I write poetry myself, I haven't
been able to express in words how I feel, this poem does it for me
beautifully.

i agree with those who have commented "tolerance" in terms of experiencing
this poem first through film. we are all a product of our
experiences...how many of you had teachers, parents or friends who were
into poetry? for that matter literature? no? then, please keep your
snooty uppercrust i-knew-about-this-long-before-you comments to yourself.
as if only the first few pple who discovered cummings in the 20s are
allowed to appreciate his work after it is referenced in pop culture. we
should be happy things like this exist and are injected into the mainstream
so the mainstream can become more altruistic. peace...

Auch ich habe soeben zum ersten Mal den Film "In den Schuhen meiner
Schwester" gesehen und musste nach diesem tollen, herzzerreißendem Gedicht
sehen...Ich musste es unbedingt noch einmal hören, weil es mich zu Tränen
gerührt hat und ich einfach wissen musste, wer so etwas wunderschönes
schreiben kann und aus welchen Gründen er das getan hat. Kennt jemand den
unmittelbaren Zusammenhang zwischen dem Gedicht "i carry your heart with
me" und dem damaligen Zusammenhang zum Autor ee cummings? Also Leute, ich
find das ja echt spitze, dass so viele den selben Gedanken hatten wie ich.
So etwas ist doch auch einmalig und zauberhaft...Gute Nacht or good night
people. In Love Monique

Stop it there's other great poems out there like that. If Cameron Diaz read
any other poem on profound love by any other poet you would all be
searching for that poem too, any you know it

I have never been a person who reads poetry freqently. and I must confess
that it was after watching "in her soes" with my sister that i lookt up
this poem. If nothing else it really deskribe sisterhood to my. or anyway
the relationship i have with my sister. for whatever happends i know that
that bond will never brake. I am still quriuss what ee cummings had in mind
when this poem was written.
