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.

My high school all girls choir (which I am apart of) is singing the Gwyneth
Walker version of this song. Amazing, simply beautiful. I get goosebumps
just listening to the words.

This poem is so "goody" that it just makes me want to throw up. I also
hate ho E.E. Cummings uses the freaking liwer case letters. It drives me
crazy. Does anyone agree?

i can so relate to how cummings must have been amazed when seeing the world
as God's creation and being in awe of Him.

inside limbs turn toward sun
and neck unravels to see your shine
now i think i'll drink your Light
Bless me with your smile

One of the first things I noticed about this poem is that the only words
that are capitalized in the whole poem are "God" and "You". Even the title
contains only one capitalized word, "God". This serves to make God stand
out as being superior and mighty. This poem just lifts my spirits every

The poem is used as the focal point of a contemporary living sculpture by
Mitch Ryerson close by eec's grave in Forest Hills Cemetery in Boston Ma.
The poem is stamped on copper seat inside a carved out sugar maple tree. A
space has been cut inside where a copy of eec's poetry is left to catch the
careful visitor. In such a setting the poem from a sequence- "Religous
Leanings" inspires. Three other poems by eec are close by, painted onto
pinewood planks, and you climb a gentle slope to read them.
I discovered these on Christmas Day 2005. Appropriate themes of life, light
and love.
