Since Feeling Is First by E.E. Cummings
Since feeling is first Who pays any attention
To the syntax of things
Will never wholly kiss you;
Wholly to be a fool
While Spring is in the world My blood approves,
And kisses are a better fate
Than wisdom Lady i swear by all flowers.
Don't cry
The best gesture of my brain is less than
Your eyelids' flutter which says
We are for eachother: then
Laugh, leaning back in my arms
For life's not a paragraph
And death i think is no parenthesis
