"Every morning when I wake up, before I open my eyes, I recite e.e. cummings’ poem “i thank You God for most this amazing day”. (I’m not a Christian). And when I get to the line “now the ears of my ears awake” I wait and wait until I hear my wife breathing next to me, then I finish, “now the eyes of my eyes are opened."
#who ARE you?
#e. e. cummings
