This poem represents a time in my life where I was in love with someone who
left me for someone else. It is about rising above the pain and consoling
yourself and the loss you feel. It is a positive reaction to a sad
situation. Full of wonderful imagry, it definitely strikes a chord.

This poem is sad. He's saying that if I can't have you because you love
someone else then my blessing goes with you and him.

Bjork is great, but listen to Mathilde Santings recording of "it may not
always be so" and "maggie and millie and mollie and may" from her album
Water Under The Bridge and you too will fall in love

It made me so happy to find that bjork made a song containing e.e.
cummings' poem because i love both artists!

if you love this poem, look out for bj÷rk's new album, med├║lla, on which
she sings a song based upon this.
