for my dear friend

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it (anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet)
i want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

-- e. e. cummings

what a lovely poem, for such a lovely couple.

skin white as snow, hair black as night, true love's kiss... just saying, sara could be a real life snow white.

lake vacation

could you ask for a cuter group of little ones? these cousins had a blast all week at the family cabin. green pine hills, golden flecked beaches, relatively warm water, happy company, who could ask for anything more?


when i asked if i could take a picture of her face she nodded, and gave me this sweet look.
