i thank You God for most this amazing

i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth
day of life and love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any-lifted from the no
of all nothing-human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

--e.e. cummings

Happy Thanksgiving, all. Back on Monday.

I thank you, God, most for proper capitalization and punctuation--and for people who know how to use it.
Cummings probably has some good things to say, but his "artistic" approach to language drives me so insane-r that I miss out!
