We performed Whitacre's setting of this poem at the ACDA choral festival in
Columbia, SC. It's a gorgeous poem. Cummings's unique syntax and word
juxtapositions blending with Whitacre's tight chord movements sends chills
down my spine. We also sang "hope, faith, life, love" by Whitacre based on
a cummings poem. The songs were performed as part of a concert entitled "I
Share Creation," a celebration of life. I can think of no more fitting poem
than "i thank You God."

I like how he described the objects better instead of saying the trees are
green and the skies are blue, instead he said the greenly sprits of trees
and the blue true dream of the sky.

I just sang this poem (the gwyneth walker arrangement) in All-State and
fell in love with the words. It also amazes me that so many other people
fell in love with this poem through singing it or hearing it. Music truly
affects the soul, especially combined with poetry as outstanding as this

This is an absolutely lovely poem and for anyone who cannot bring
themselves to appreciate it I highly suggest listening to Eric Whitacre's
"I Thank You God For Most This Amazing Day" and hear how lovely this poem
REALLY is. And yes this version is 1,000,000x better than the gwyneth
walker version(yes im serious).

this poem makes me feel connected to generations past and future. when i
was 11 my mom died. years later one of her friends sent me this poem when
i graduated from college. what a wonderful way of saying that her legacy
continued through me. i have kept the poem posted at my workplace for
years, and this saturday, when i marry my husband, it will be one of the
readings at our ceremony.

This was the first poem that i ever memorized by e. e. cummings. I decided
once that i would recite it instead of grace before a meal. However,
before i got very far, I could sense that the others were really hungry and
somewhat impatient, so I ended the poem rather abruptly. Unfortunately, I
was at the part that says: "i who have died am alive again"

I think this poem is beautiful.I don't really enjoy e e cummings poetry but
this is one i am very fond of. I really enjoy the finish of this poem and i
think it is ended beautifully.
