I Carry Your Heart with Me: A Poetry Collection I Carry Your Heart with Me 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 soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart I ...view middle of the document...

I like the poem because this type of love described is hard to find. I have chosen to include this in my poetry collection because when I heard this poem, I was touched by it and I wanted to share it. Reading Notes-“I carry your heart with me” Initial Response -the feeling I get from this poem is passionate and I was touched by it. I don’t really understand the third stanza when it says ‘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 soul can hope or mind can hide.’ Basic Meaning -the main idea of the poem is about a love that is hard to find. Organization -The poem could almost be called a sonnet. It has 15 lines and 3 stanzas. But, typical of a Cummings poem, it goes its own direction and does so with great effect. -The pattern of organization is spatial order. Artistic Language -the poem’s style is unique and highly visual. He uses words to paint a picture like ‘I carry your heart with me’. He uses metaphors like ‘you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you’. Sound Effects -The poet creates a rhythm and an interesting sound to the poem by repeating ‘I carry your heart with me, I carry it in my heart’ and he says in the third stanza ‘the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky’ which he uses the word twice. His style forces a certain rhythm into the poem when read aloud. His language is simple and his poems become fun and playful.
