exists somewhere

It has been with me for many years. In times of loneliness and times more
generous. Only Corad Aiken's " This is the Shape of the Leaf " provides
that mute palpability that is " Somewhere ". If I could write but one poem
in all the ones I've read then this would be it.

The first time I heard this poem was when a few lines of it was read on an
episode of Beverly Hills 90210 when the characters "Kelly" and "Brandon"
were about to get married and "Brandon" read it to "Kelly", and I knew then
I had to access the entire pooem and I am glad I did, because it has become
one of my two favorite poems. So beautifully written, this poem is so
georgeous, I wish I had written it myself.

It is very moving to me to find people who love this poem as much as I do.
I also first came across it in "Hannah..." but have since read the complete
works and love all his poems. But this is without doubt my favourite poem
of all time. I think that ee cummings is the person who taught me how to
feel.

I heard a bit of this poem years ago from "Hannah and her Sisters" and it
captivated me. It popped back into my head tonight because of feeling I am
having for a lady.It sums up what I am feeling so I had to send it on to
her

This is my favorite poem. To me, it says everything you can say about
being in love. What brilliant expression of feelings. It makes me want to
be a poet.

To me, this poem is about the Holy Spirit, opening and closing our souls at
Will and for the glory of God.
