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.

Oh..What a poem...made me think for a while... How can anyone write a poem
with such beauty... Thanks to the poet for giving us such gift... It makes
me think!... I just heard this poem today while watching "In Her Shoes" and
thought i must read it again...

I am one of those who experianced "I carry your heart with me" while
watching "in her shoes"! As much as I wish it could be different as in me
loving the poem first and then appreciating it on screen but I guess not.
Everything happens for a reason, Im just glad I had the oppotunity to fall
in love with life for no reason.

Like most of you I first heard this poem at the movies. I cried when I
heard it, it was so moving. My youngest daughter tragically died before
she was two years old and the line I carry your heart (I carry it in my
heart) is just so meaningful and beautiful

I watched "in her shoes" last night, when cameron read that poem out my
heart just dropped for my love of my life it has so much depth so true to
real love...i feel so happy this morning with thoughts of the poem and i
sent it to my partner he loved it very much and was moved by it..... Thank
you very much E E Cummings..... This will inspire many other real loves in
the World...

Perhaps a little more tolerence and understanding could be extended to
those who may not have had access or the opportunity to experience the
poetry of e.e. cummings prior to this film.
For whatever reason, surely an interest in poetry or any other art form is
something to be embraced.

I agree with Haylie from China, it's pretty sad that a poem receives such
notice just because of a movie. There are plenty of other E E Cummings
poems that are so much better, and personally, when I think of E E
Cummings, I do NOT think of love poems. Many people seem to just be
inspired by the message of the poem, but E E Cummings was such a unique
poet... this is not a very remarkable example of what he was capable of, in
my opinion. Some of his best works lose a considerable amount of meaning
when read aloud! I truly hope that those people who find E E Cummings works
through this movie will be inspired enough to read (not listen to) more of
his poems, and look up some of his paintings (he was also an artist).

Seems we have all been touched by this poem after seeing 'In her Shoes', I
have to admit I had not heard it before, and it has inspired me to read
more of E E Cummings poems. What a master of words!!! I am touched,
inspired, in love and amazed.
