Day 91

I've been a poetry mood lately. My favorite lines of e.e. cummings:
dive for dreams 
or a slogan may topple you 
(trees are their roots
 and wind is wind)  
trust your heart 
if the seas catch fire 
(and live by love 
though the stars walk backward)  
honour the past 
but welcome the future

That's how I want to live my life.  Oh, and Longfellow and Whitman are pretty good too.
