I was never very good in English during my studies in high school.  I always struggled to find the deeper meaning behind stories by Shakespeare or other famous authors.  I much preferred my math and science classes where the answers were black or white.

Last week, I received a beautiful poster of famous English sonnets and I love it.  Although I still have a hard time figuring out exactly the meaning of each one, I think them very romantic and peaceful.  I hung the poster right outside our bedroom to usher in feelings of love, romance, and togetherness.  I’ve studied some Feng Shui and I believe this falls in line with their teachings.

A friend of mine also likes poetry and I’m going to quote one here he shared by e.e. cummings.  It makes me stop and reflect, just like the poster.  I now know why people support the arts because they bring a special type of quiet gift to our everyday lives.

Love is more thicker than forget

more thinner than recall

more seldom than a wave is wet

more frequent to fail

it is most mad and moonly

and less it shall unbe

than all the sea which only

is deeper than the sea

love is less always than to win

less never than alive

less bigger than the least begin

less littler than forgive

it is most sane and sunly

and more it cannot die

that all the sky which only
is higher than the sky
-e.e. cummings
