since feelings is first…


since feeling is first,
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world
my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady, I swear by all flowers
don’t cry;
the best gesture of my brain
is less than your eyelids’ flutter
which says we are for each other
then laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life’s not a paragraph
and death i think is no parenthesis,
since feeling is first

e.e. cummings
