you shall above all things be glad and young

e.e. cummings

you shall above all things be glad and young
For if you're young,whatever life you wear

it will become you;and if you are glad
whatever's living will yourself become.
Girlboys may nothing more than boygirls need:
i can entirely her only love

whose any mystery makes every man's
flesh put space on;and his mind take off time

that you should ever think,may god forbid
and (in his mercy) your true lover spare:
for that way knowledge lies,the foetal grave
called progress,and negation's dead undoom.

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance

~For Greg, courage

That is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen... and that poem is nice too! HAHA!! Thanks again for the wonderful evening out... the next visit better have a trip to The West Brook Inn on the agenda. I miss you lots and can't wait to see you when the weather gets warm!

Love, your favorite person in the world besides your husband and children and Cook and HILLARY,

I MAY just start a blog of my own... we'll see.
