Gedicht van de week

Elke zaterdag geeft Schrijven Online je een gedicht van de week. Poëzie kan mooi zijn, leuk, aangrijpend enzovoorts. Schrijven Online trakteert elke zaterdag op een gedicht van een andere schrijver. Deze week ‘i carry your heart’ van de Amerikaanse dichter E.E. Cummings.

i carry your heart

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)

i fear

no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)

and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
