i thank You God for most this amazing

i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which 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 birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any—lifted from the no
of all nothing—human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

— e.e. cummings

    Hi Michelle – So glad to see the revival of The Gladdest Thing. I, and I suspect many others, missed your daily (more or less) choices . The cummings is an appropriate re-inaugural sonnet. Welcome back.

    I am a complete stranger, but found your blog over a year ago and enjoyed every poem and shared with others… Great to hear from you again!!! Re-Inspiring!

      I was so glad to find the Gladdest Thing posting an email into my inbox once again. I need these!
