ee cummings starts off by talking about nature and happiness and it’s all just so wonderful–and then he smacks me upside the head with the third stanza.
“Let me keep company always with those who say, / “Look!” and laugh in astonishment, / and bow their heads.”
“… Why not / live each day as if it were the first–/all raw astonishment …”
“When Your ocean waves all break over me, / I remember You and Your steadfast truth”
“I’m going home…”
“I can’t carry the pain of this broken world. / But. . . / He did.”
