I've always found this poem beautiful but I never truly understood it until
I fell in love....

I think this poem is great. It seems to speak to its reader in a soft and
gentle voice. It makes you realize that love is much more than just a word
but rather an intense feeling of completelness.

Something about this poem strikes me in a way undescribable; I can only
hope I could evoke such feeling to someone someday as is expressed in this

This is the most beautiful poem I have ever read in my entire life. It
says everything about the most deep and meaningful of all human connection,
and connection is the most rewarding prospect in life. No other word to
describe these words than...beautiful.

Just to let you know, there is a beautiful portuguese version of this poem
in a song by Zeca Baleiro who is himself quite amazing. The song is called
Nalgum Lugar which means roughly Somewhere. The song is how I first found
out about the poem. I didn't know it was an english poem by ee cummings
until I ran across a commentary on some Brazilian site.

I too am glad I found this poem. It really is breathtakingly beautiful, but
not in any way sappy like so many lesser poems. Even in another language
this one will make you cry.
