                                   I THANK YOU GOD FOR MOST THIS AMAZING

City Park, NOLA in March 2015

                                        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
                                        which 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 of 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 (1894-1962)
