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?

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.
