i carry your heart song

a big welcome to all the lovely ladies from sits who are stopping by today.  i hope you enjoy your visit, and i look forward to checking out your blogs as well!

something you may not know about me is that i love singing and have been composing songs (for fun) ever since high school.  since i always enjoy learning something new about my fellow bloggers, i thought it would be fun to share one of the songs i've written.

i wrote this song for my sister, hannah, as a christmas gift a few years ago.  the lyrics are adapted from e.e. cumming's poem "i carry your <3" - a favorite of ours. 

i hope you enjoy (and if you don't - please be kind : )

 

original poem by e.e. cummings

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it
(anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)

i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet)
i want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

so, mavens, do you have any hobbies or interests that not too many people know about?  i encourage you to share them too!

  2. Happy SITS Day! As far as 'secret' hobbies go, I also love singing - so much so that I nearly attempted a theater career! Love the song; and you have a great voice!

  3. So nice to meet you from SITS today. You have a great site with lots of wonderful recipes. I am starting a monthly "meal-planning made easy" on the first of each month to help moms plan meals for the month. Would love for you to link up some of your favorites. The link is open until the 15th. It opens the first of each month. I look forward to seeing more of your creations.

  5. Found your blog just as I was procrastinating on making my meal plan for the week (and with two growing boys and a hardworking husband, I need one). The e.e. cummings was a total treat, and I look forward to trying out some of your recipes.

  7. Happy SITS DAY! I love the concept of your blog! I think the gray and yellow look ultra chic! You are inspiring me to cook more! I wish I was brave enough to sing! However, I have a very terrible voice, so I will spare us all!

  11. What a beautiful song and a wonderful idea for a gift to your sister! My favorite hobbie is definitely writing. I used to write poems when I was younger but now I have been enjoying writing fiction inspired by whatever interesting prompts I come across in books or the internet. It's so much fun to express yourself and have others respond.
