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.

About Maya

Bored of the tedium and tired of the rut, I look for shelter in my imaginary hut; Behind these veils of propriety and decorum, I desperately seek a liberating forum; In my words and humor you'll find fire But beware and warned, It's all just Maya! Come, see my world through my window..
