e.e Cummings reading

Following on from the latest post about the poetry of e.e Cummings – here is a youtube post of him reading his poem ‘i thank you god for most this amazing day’:-

i thank You God for most this amazing
 day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday;this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings:and of the gay
 great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
 breathing any–lifted from the no
 of allnothing–human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
