as freedom is a breakfastfood


as freedom is a breakfastfood
or truth can live with right and wrong
or molehills are from mountains made
—long enough and just so long
will being pay the rent of seem
and genius please the talentgang
and water most encourage flame

as hatracks into peachtrees grow
or hopes dance best on bald men’s hair
and every finger is a toe
and any courage is a fear
—long enough and just so long
will the impure think all things pure
and hornets wail by children stung

or as the seeing are the blind
and robins never welcome spring
nor flatfolk prove their world is round
nor dingsters die at break of dong
and common’s rare and millstones float
—long enough and just so long
tomorrow will not be too late

worms are the words but joy’s the voice
down shall go which and up come who
breasts will be breasts thighs will be thighs
deeds cannot dream what dreams can do
—time is a tree(this life one leaf)
but love is the sky and i am for you
just so long and long enough

E. E. Cummings

I have to go with this for sheer loveliness.... I am forever saying "ding" as a little note of emphasis, to connote something just struck my mind gong.

Also my favorite! It really sticks out!
All those leaves reaching out to the sky. Love , the highest vibration, is limitless.

What I love about poetry is the poet's sublime ability to wrap a kernel of truth in layers which display the complex foldings and unwrappings of this game of life - like a giant origami paper flower containing a sprinkling of powerful seeds of truth. e e cummings has seen fit to show us the world of duality, the world of opposites, but wrapping it up with the knowledge that joy is the quantum fountainhead, which can be found.... when shown the way.
