in honour of Earth Day...

I know I've posted this piece by e.e.cummings before, but it's such a little treasure that it deserves a re-appearance on a day dedicated to "the gay great happening illimitably earth"...

i thank You God for most this amazingday:for the leaping greenly spirits of treesand a blue true dream of sky;and for everythingwhich is natural which is infinite which is yes
(i who have died am alive again today,and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birthday of life and of love and wings:and of the gay great happening illimitably earth)
how should tasting touching hearing seeingbreathing any--lifted from the noof all nothing--human merely beingdoubt unimaginable You?
(now the ears of my ears awake and now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
