I Carry your Heart

 I carry your heart with me (I carry it in
my heart) I am never without it (anywhere
I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
I fear
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)
-e.e. cummings

I love this poem. Always have, and I hope, always will. I think it just sums up so many emotions. I've used this poem (or excerpts of it) on a few layouts so far, and I'm sure it will pop up again in the future. Here, I used it to sum up my feelings as I carried bunny, who is now a smiley, bouncy little Ellie.

A peek at the title--I'm a *teeny* bit obsessed with lullaby thickers in gray. Love.

Another peek--the rag is from Inspired Lovely on etsy and I've used just about every leaf in the package from Amy Tan!

I also broke out my vintage typewriter on this one--hopefully I'll get to do that again soon!  While this layout is a few months old, I'm just now working on my first layout of the new house, a watershed moment. I haven't scrapped in weeks due to the move and craziness and while it felt a bit stilted at first, it feels wonderful.

My scrap area may be messy, chaotic, and filled with maternity items needing to be put away, but I'm loving it:)

Do YOU have a song/poem/quote that you use multiple times on different layouts?

  9. ps, sorry to plague you with comments, but your post reminded me of another post I read awhile ago and then I had to search it down so I could share it with you. That crazy & frantic place you are at made me think of it:
