you shall above all things... (22)

e.e. cummings

   
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.
Girlboys may nothing more than boygirls need:
i can entirely her only love
   
whose any mystery makes every man's
flesh put space on;and his mind take off time
   
that you should ever think,may 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 not to dance
