the second major realization of Easter postponed

I was going to write about my other thoughts of Easter break, but then I started reading ee cummings poetry. He very well might be my favorite poet (a term some would prefer to use loosely with him), but when you get beyond the feeling that he's just being pretentious and he's actually developing beautiful art and beauty, maybe he'll become one of your favorite poets as well.

And because I'm a giving kind of guy, here's one of his poems:

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 far 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
