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 all nothing—human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

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

~ E. E. Cummings (1894-1962)
American poet, essayist, and playwright
