Jeg beklager min mangel på aktivitet herinde, men der har været lidt tekniske problemer her på bloggus og sådan er livet vel også i cyberspace.
Nå, men jeg antager at mange af jer allerede kender til E.E Cummings; en amerikansk digter, forfatter, dramatiker med mere på hans ret ambitiøse CV.
En af hans mest berømte digte er  ” I Carry your heart”  men nu faldt jeg tilfældigvis over et andet digt der gav mig gåsehud.
Det er så smukt, at jeg næsten ikke begriber at det ermenneskeskabt og jeg ville bare lige dele det med jer:

beloved
i dreamed
  it appeared that you thought to
  escape me and became a great
  lily atilt on
  insolent
  waters    but i was aware of
  fragrance and i came riding upon
  a horse of porphyry    into the
  waters i rode down the red
  horse shrieking    from splintering
  foam caught you clutched you upon my
  mouth
listen
beloved
  i dreamed    in my dream you had
  desire to thwart me and became
  a little bird and hid
  in a tree of tall marble
  from a great way i distinguished
  singing and i came
  riding upon a scarlet sunset
  trampling the night    easily
  from the shocked impossible
  tower i caught
  you strained you
  broke you upon my blood
listen
  beloved i dreamed
  i thought you would have deceived
  me and became a star in the kingdom
  of heaven
  through day and space i saw you close
  your eyes    and i came riding
  upon a thousand crimson years arched with agony
  i reined them in tottering before
  the throne and as
  they shied at the automaton moon from
  the transplendant hand of sombre god
  i picked you
as an apple is picked by the little peasants for their girls

Der var lidt at sove på.

Godnat, folkens jeg vender stærkt tilbage !
