I am doing a lot of writing for the church right now (annual report, column in the news letter, sermons, etc.) and I just don’t feel like I have a lot of words left in me tonite. So I thought I would share a poem – someone else’s words, instead of my own. Only, I couldn’t remember the name of the poem. I knew it was ee cummings, and there was some mention of the sky in it. But that’s all. I’ve been searching for this poem for a while now. Tonite as I searched for it, I suddenly remembered the line “than all the sky which only is higher than the sky”.

Yay! With that I was able to find it!

I am not sure I have ever known what this poem means, but I have always loved it.

So without further adieu, here is:

 

[love is more thicker than forget] by ee cummings.

love is more thicker than forget
more thinner than recall
more seldom than a wave is wet
more frequent than to fail
it is more mad and moonly
and less it shall unbe
than all the sea which only
is deeper than the sea
love is less always than to win
less never than alive
less bigger than the least begin
less littler than forgive
it is most sane and sunly
and more it cannot die
than all the sky which only
is higher than the sky
