The capitalization and lack of in the first line evoke humility in relation
to God's grandeur. The four sections of the poem bring me to 1) gratitude,
2) joy, 3) faith and 4) wisdom. When read during meditation, this poem can
launch me into another dimension. Very nice.

I woke this morning thinking of this poem on this most amazing day.
I love how cummings expressed God without defining God.
It's like a prayer -- private, comforting, full of joy and gratitude.
Thank you e.e.

My husband and I chose this poem to be read at our wedding. It was an
outdoor wedding by the water at a church camp we both attended as children.
It was a beautiful spring day and it felt like we were living the poem in
that moment.

This poem is so beautiful; it manages to express pure joy, pure gratitude.
Brand New Day

My husband has designed a sweet, funky and whimsical studio for me next to
our house. Looking for some inspirational words to be a part of the studio
I remembered this beautiful, uplifting poem. We have re-created the first
stanza as a 3-dimensional frieze of 8 inch letters to be installed under
the roof line, wrapping all around the building. I hope ee enjoys it.

Being grateful can be seen as reestablishing the connectedness with our
environment and ourselves. What are we without that connection?

This peom has a really vivid image of a brand new day. This poem can help
you realize how lucky we are to wake up everyday with the sun in the sky
and the wind in our face. The one thing that worries me is that we are
destroying our earth and one day we will not be able to wake up to this

Salam aleikum everyone,
This poem makes me soar. Every dawn after I pray I read a bit of Quran, and
then this poem. This is maybe unorthodox but ee cummings really knew what
he was talking about!

This poem is no doubt most lovely but it could also be considered most
biblical. It reminds me of Romans 1:20
" For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities-his eternal
power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what
has been made, so that men are without excuse."

What I got from this poem was that e.e. cummings caught a glimpse of the
Living God through creation, and it was a profound experience for
him...evidence that pointed him to biblical truth.

I am going to become ordained as an Interfaith Minister in June 2005
through One Spirit Interfaith Seminary in New York City. Each month this
year we must develop a ceremony (baby blessing, seasonal ritual, marriage,
civil union, memorial, funeral service). I did a Thanksgiving Service and
the poem that immediately sprung to mind from my college days was this one.
Rather than having a homily or talk on gratitude, I chose to read this
poem, have people meditate on those things in the past year (whether joyful
or sorrowful) that they were thankful for this year, share them, along with
bread and sing. I couldn't have done anything better to express the
feeling of Thanksgiving than this poem. Thank you ee.
