most this amazing

Adapted from ee cummings’ poem.

I thank You God for most this amazing day: (most this amazing day)

for the leaping greenly spirits of trees (greenly spirits of trees)
and a blue true dream of sky;
(blue true dream of sky)
and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes
(which is yes, everything natural infinite yes)

I thank You (thank you most this amazing)
I thank You (thank you most this amazing)
I thank You (thank you most this amazing)
Thank You.

(I who have died am alive again today, (alive again today)
and this is the sun’s birthday; (this is the birthday of the birthday of the sun)

this is the birthday of life and of love and wings: (birthday 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)
