i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart)i am never without i t(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
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 carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
Even if cummings intended it as a love poem, the last line seems to me to be about all kinds of love including husband/wife, parent/child.... I mean, even if it is metaphoric, don't we all carry the hearts of those we love within us?
In keeping with finding scraps, etc. from other projects (or just stuff I do for personal entertainment), I decided to use this piece of embroidery, done quite a while back for no real purpose, for another little quilt. I've melted and stitched down some black netting over it.
I worked on the above while watching William & Mary with Martin Clunes. I love Martin Clunes in Doc Martin, and it is strange to see him so much younger (and less Asperger's). :)
Watching/listening to Netflix DVDs while I'm in the studio is something I really enjoy.
I watched Rain Shadow while working on the "i carry your heart" quilt. One thing I like about British and Australian shows is the fact that the actresses are allowed to look human.
