i thank You God for most this amazing
If you click the photo above, it will get larger and you can read the e.e. cummings poem.
The poet e.e. cummings was a Christian. All of his work is colored with his belief in Jesus Christ, and some of his most passionate poetry expresses his encompassing faith. He was no prude, no traditionalist, and his writing is shocking. And oh after all these years so many of his poems still make me weep with joy!
More of his poems can be found on the internet, but there may be errors ( or ideological edits) in transcription, so if you like his work, buy it in book form. Ignore commentary and read the poems.
If you are discouraged, looking for hope, for truth, for meaning, spend a day or a weekend reading the poems of e e cummings, and come away renewed, restored, and refreshed for a beautiful future.
