E.E. Cummings 

If freckles were lovely, and day was night
and measles were nice and a lie wasn't a lie
life would be delight 
but things couldn't go right 
for in such a sad plight 
i wouldn't be i 

if earth was heaven and now was hence
and past was present and false was true
there might be some sense
but I'd be in suspense 
for on such a pretense 
you wouldn't be you.

If fear was plucky, and globes were square 
and dirt was cleanly and tears were glee
things would seem fair
yet they'll all despair 
for if here was there 
we wouldn't be we.

Love is more thicker than forget
E.E. Cummings 

Love is more thicker than forget
more thinner than recall
more seldom than a wave is wet
more frequent than to fail

It's most mad and moonly
and less it shall unbe 
than all the sea which only
is deeper than the sea

Love is more always than to win
less never than alive
less bigger than the least begin
less litter than forgive

It's more sane and sunly
and more it cannot die
than all the sky which only
is higher than the sky

i shall imagine life
By E.E. Cummings 

i shall imagine life

is not worth dying if
( and when )roses complain
their beauties are in vain

but though mankind persuades
itself that every weed's
a rose roses ( you feel 
certain )will only smile

i carry your heart with me
By E.E. Cummings 

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)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet)i want 
no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)
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 the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the star apart

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

Dive For Dreams
By E.E. Cummings 

dive for dreams
or a slogan may topple you
(trees are their roots
and wind is wind)

trust your heart
if the seas catch fire
(and live by love
through the stars walk backward)

honour the past
but welcome the future 
(and dance your death
away at this wedding)

never mind a world
with its villains or hero's
(for god likes girls
and tomorrow and the earth)
