you shall...

I pulled out my e.e.cummings poetry from a box the other day. It was like being re-united with old friends. He was the first poet who ever moved me.

"you shall above all things be glad and young.
For if you're young, whatever life you wear

it will become you;and if you are glad
whatever's living will yourself become."
