spring!may–
everywhere’s here
(with a low high low
and the bird on the bough)
how?why
–we never we know
(so kiss me) shy sweet eagerly my
most dear

(die!live)
the new is the true
and to lose is to have
–we never we know–
brave!brave
(the earth and the sky
are one today)my very so gay
young love

why?how–
we never we know
(with a high low high
in the may in the spring)
live!die
(forever is now)
and dance you suddenly blossoming tree
–i’ll sing

 

-e. e. cummings
