This is My Father's World

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
wich is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth
day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any-lifted from the no
of all nothing-human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)   
  - e. e. cummings

I couldn't get this poem out of my head today. I spent most of the morning outside with my three little friends (we hang out together several times a week), rejoicing and being glad in the day God made. 

(Psalm 118:24)
