Just saw the movie and had to stop myself from shedding a tear. Beautifully
recited poem, very moving indeed. I am glad I am now exposed to Cummings
poems.
Oh! Very good movie too.

This one touched me really straight away in my heart... actually it is a
rather simple image, that almost everybody knows (this feelings for someone
else); but to grasp things and feelings with an image like that, is what a
poet makes a poet, right?

I fell in love with Cummings the moment I read "you said Is" ... still find
it the most beautiful poem ever written. But this one ... means a lot to me
'cause my heart's been broken and I love that person so dearly that I fell
like dying. I carry his heart in my heart and this gives me strength to
believe that after those few months he will find the way back to me.

I lost my husband this summer. We always cherished one another. Life
without his presence is a daily struggle. I want to share an experience I
had the night he passed away because I truly believe i carry his heart in
my heart. I was awakened from sleep the night he died by the feeling I had
been touched or almost slapped on the heart. He was letting me know he was
alright and he'd always be with me.

Yes I too discovered this poem through the movie In Your Shoes. I am glad
for it. Ms. Diaz recited it beautifully. And I am now a fan.. whereas I
may never have known...

Je connaissais Baudelaire ,Verlaine, Mallarmé,Keats , Yeats et Gibran.je
decouvre maintenant Cumming qui
dans "in her shoes" traduit par son poeme autant l'emancipation que le
rapport aux autres.
Merci encore pour ce superbe poeme ainsi que pour l'etude faite par le
professeur sur ce sujet.
Cette poesie transporte le film.
si d'aventure une traduction en est faite en français (chose que je n'ai
pas trouvé sur le net), je serais ravie de la recevoir.
Merci a toutes et tous !
ainsi qu'a E E CUMMING

I suggest that those who are laughing at us for having discovered 'I carry
your heart with me' through the medium of film should consider the art form
of matching character and plot to poetry in such an eloquent and beautiful
way. Please get over yourselves. Perhaps try watching the film. We have
enjoyed and appreciated a love poem, recited by a talented actress in a
thoughtful, heart warming film. We do not pretend to have discovered this
poem. We claim no rights to it, please leave us to enjoy it.

what an nice surprises to find in a "chick flick" such an endearing poem.
Yes, even to this cynical man I shed a tear or two when hearing it in the
movie.
it brought the movie to a different level. How wonderful it exposes a world
of new readers to the poem.

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?
