I think I'm going to use that title phrase as much as possible in my daily life. :)

I love e. e. cummings, but for love poems I prefer Pablo Neruda.

I'm noticing that the M&M's are half full... or are they half empty? I think this is an optimist's poem, thus they're half full.

ps - We were enjoying our conversation on race and writing - you've engendered some really great comments. Pop back in sometime?

Ain't it the truth.
We had "i carry your heart" read in our wedding. Makes me all gushy just thinking about it...

tadmack - I am heading over there right now. Sorry I have been out to lunch.

The m&ms were half full when I snapped the picture. Of course they disappeared too quickly!

Though we have far too much chocolate in the house, your photo identifies that elusive something missing... How have we made it without the Valentine m&m's?

Thanks for this bit of e.e. cummings extravagance.

e.e. cummings is the "bomb" (as my 6th graders would say). He is the ultimate love poet.

Cloudscome,

That's a great love poem. I wonder if anyone has ever written a poem about loving someone as much as chocolate! Now that would be a poem I could bite into!

Thanks for the link to the poem.

I have a meme at my blog and I tagged you. :)
