and this is because i still love cummings.

September 8, 2009

i almost cried the other day in my english 251 class.
imagine me. sitting in class.
braving another day, and another week.
guys, i know i said i was excited for fall.
but after nearly failing my french exam,
and after realizing that i will literally have gray
hair at the end of this semester
thanks to my masterpieces in world lit course...
I heard the following:
"i hope you like cummings, class. he'll be our focus this semester."

wow.
i really truly wanted to cry.
i still do.
out of all the misery and doom i was
beginning to anticipate for fall semester of '09
i heard those words -
"i hope you like cummings, class."
seriously, it felt like christmas morning.

so i thought i'd share - yet again - one of my favorites,
because i will always love mr. cummings.

...

we're anything brighter than even the sun

(we're everything greater
than books
might mean)
we're everyanything more than believe
(with a spin
leap
alive we're alive)
we're wonderful one times one.

i will say that to someone one day too.
"we're wonderful one times one."
now that's wonderful.
