What a beautiful poem that accurately describes the love of a mother and
child...

Make no mistake, this a poem about love, great love between lovers, between
a Mother and child, between family. It belongs to anyone who carries love
in their heart. It is warm and wonderful and touching. One of the dearest
poems I've ever read. I love you, g and I love you mf! xxj

In her shoes was a really good movie. i didnt have high expectation for it
... except looking at the beautiful shoes. but it iwas surprisingly great.
this poem at then end made the movie a thousand times more wonderful. i
have always been a poetry fan.... so the fact that this poem touched me
greatly goes un said... i love it.

I too saw the movie "In her Shoes" and it was a good movie (a chick flick
my husband would say) but he enjoyed it as well. I applaud the movie
makers in letting us know who wrote this beautiful poeem. So often we are
left wondering where a song or poem came from and i want to thank them for
that. Great poem

I have been married 12 years, and have been separated from my wife by
military service the past few months-I stumbled on this poem and feel it
perfectly expresses what I feel about her and us at the end of each
day-that she is with me even when I am far away, and that she has had the
greatest role in creating whatever positive things I am.

The first time I heard someone read this poem, I stopped dead in my tracks
and listened, and listened and listened. All the sounds of the world going
by became fainter and fainter and fainter as I hung onto each and every
earthy bit and could no longer hear anything else or think of anything
else. It is thee most beautiful attempt of getting to the depth,
depth,depth of how one feels when they love someone soooo deeply that this
person brings meaning to their VERY existence. Hearing someone read the
line that goes... "here is the deepest secret nobody knows...here is the
root of the root and the bud of the bud....." is the closest description of
the magnitude of my feelings for the people who have touched my life in
insurmountable ways from my grandfather, to each of my three beautiful
children, my husband and special friends who make up my life. xo-B.

i wonder who he wrote the poem to/about - it's such a beautiful poem. the
first time i read it i thought it was about love lost - a break up or
seperation - but on later readings, i thought like kasey that it could be
to a love lost by death. so sent it on to my aunty after the death of her
son, she carries it with her because it reminds her that he's not so far
away... it's just so beautiful

Has anyone thought that perhaps the departed E.E. Cummings was referring to
a love he lost by death?? For he "fears no fate (for you are my fate, my
sweet)" meaning that he does not fear death because he will meet his love
again one day. Also, the secret that no one knows could be what happens
after death "tree of life".
