Love and its mysteries.

E.E. Cummings
Love and its mysteries- 6

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 living will yourself become.
Girlboys may nothing more than boygirls need:
i can entirely her only love

who's any mystery makes every man's
flesh put space on;and his mind take off time

that you should ever think, my god forbid
and(in his mercy)your true lover spare:
for that way knowledge lies, the foetal grave
called progress, and negation's dead undoom.

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how to not dance.
