may my heart always be open – Poem by e.e. cummings

 

may my heart always be open to little

birds who are the secrets of living

whatever they sing is better than to know

and if men should not hear them men are old

 

may my mind stroll about hungry

and fearless and thirsty and supple

and even if it’s Sunday may I be wrong

for whenever men are right they are not young

 

and may myself do nothing usefully

and love yourself so more than truly

there’s never been quite such a fool who could fail

pulling all the sky over him with one smile
