This poem has come to mean so much to me. I thought of my daughter, Mandy,
when I saw the movie this week, "IN HER SHOES". Cameron Diaz, Maggie, has
Mandy's demeanor,looks, and loves with her heart. I feel this way about
my only lovely daughter, I carry your heart with me,I carry it in my heart.
Love, MOM

I just got home from seeing the movie In Her Shoes. This poem touched me
so much. I have a son who is struggling with his reading, when Maggie
started to read that poem in front of everyone I just started to cry and
instantly thought of him. I will share this poem with him and hope it will
come to be a favorite of his because it sure is now a favorite of mine.

I also heard this poem in the movie "In Her Shoes". I really liked it and
this is the second time I have heard a poem in a Hollwood picture. The
first was in "Must Love Dogs". I am glad to see that poetry is seeping
into another genre. Perhaps there will be more fans of poetry soon.

I went to see "In Her Shoes" with my sister on her birthday. When Cameron
Diaz read the poem my sister and I both started crying. This is such a
touching poem.

This poem is so moving because it reaches so many people. After me and my
sister watched the movie, "In her shoes", I understood that there is a
connection between what Maggie tells her sister Rose using the poem. She
understnds that Rose has had the harder road to travel and being the grown
up is never easy, but she appreciates everything that Rose has done and
will do for her. They are inseperable. Like me and my sister are. It is a
very moving and loving poem and the movie uses it well.

I just got home from "In Her Shoes" and I see I am not the only one touched
by this poem...I carry my granddaughter Chelsea's heart in my heart. We
live far apart but we are always together.

I saw In Her Shoes tonite with my daughter. This poem was in the movie and
I cried because it was about my daughter and myself as well. I carried her
beneath my heart and I will carry her in my heart always.
Thank you for such beautiful poetry.

This weekend I went to see "In Her Shoes" and i also bursted into tears
when Diaz's character Maggie started to read this poem. The movie was
wonderful and the poem is so moving.

It's amazing how this poem can have different meanings to different people.
I saw the movie "In Her Shoes" yesterday and when that poem was read, I
was in tears. I recently suffered a miscarriage at 6 months and as I'm
hearing it, all I could do was think of the baby I'd lost. I had to look
it up on line so I could have a copy of it --and here I am.

Great poem!

Message 18 Panama from Panama says that the poem is about a stalker or an
obsessed person who carries the heart of another. But maybe this stalker
is like literal, right? Maybe cummings is writing about someone who is
carrying someone else's heart FOR REAL -- like some sort of urban cannibal
dude. Man this poetry stuff is like so cool cause you can read anything
into it. I wonder if Cameron Diaz was like really a cannibal in the movie
and like that's why she couldn't read. And like maybe that's what she was
saying that she wanted to eat her sister's heart like she did when she
slept with boyfriend dude. Man you can really get on a role when you start
to do this poetry interpretation stuff. I shuddaguddan A in english.

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

the words of a stalker...good grief :)
