I Thank You God For Most 
This Amazing Day
by e. e. cummings
(1894 - 1962)

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)
