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.

I am one of the silly ones, who got inspired with Cummings after seeing 'In
her Shoes' today. I vaguely remember the brilliant work from my days of
study, but I have certainly not come across this poem before. It has
touched me. It has called me to forums like these and made me come alive
with hope.

I'm guessing that this will be the first of many comments on this poem from
the UK - I saw a preview of "In her shoes" over here last week and the
whole cinema was crying at the pure beauty of this poem. I studied
literature at University but I've never come across this - it's one of the
first that's ever moved me to tears. I think it's excellent that a so
called "chick flick" has brought this brilliant piece of work to our
attention and touched so many of us in the process.

I went to see "In Her Shoes" last night. I was so moved by the poem she
read that I had to come home and look it up. My husband and I seperated
after 26 years of marriage this summer. I truly understood for the first
time in my life what a broken heart felt like. It hurt so deep within my
soul. We have always known we shared a love that was something far beyond
love. It is a love that is so deep in our souls that we could never let go.
We have found our way back to each other and I believe our love and our
souls have only grown stronger. I truly feel pain in my heart, for people
who never experienced a love like we have. I will cherish our love forever.

CAUSE TODAY'S HER BIRTHDAY. I LOVE HER AND THIS POEM IS THE VERY ESSENSE
OF HOW MUCH. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIS.
