POETRY.

April 23rd, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

1. Heading to London TOMORROW for Carrie’s nuptuals! Lily just sent me this picture of her block there, and so, YES.

2. I spent last night scouring the internets for the perfect poem, or piece of poem, for my Maid of Honor speech, which should be at once funny, charming, specific and universal, no big deal. I still haven’t found the perfect one, so may just end up rambling, but still, had to share this e.e. Cummings that I found, that I Love.

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
