Poems that touch your heart- 01
“If” by E E Cummings
Heard these beautiful lines today and I wanted to share with everyone who happen to visit my blog. You know how you say just a few words but they make you bask in their beauty fora long long time. If, is one such poem.
Here it goes..
If freckles were lovely, and day was night
And measles were nice and a lie warn’t a lie
Life would be a delight
But things couldn’t go right
For in such a sad plight
I wouldn’t be I
If Earth was heaven and now was hence
And past was present and false was true
There might be some sense
But I’d be in suspense
For on such a pretense
You wouldn’t be you
If fear was plucky and globes were square
And dirt was cleanly and tears were glee
Things would seem fair
Yet they’d all despair
For if here was there
We wouldn’t be We.
