Bonjour! :-) A bit about me: I adore cats, books, old black & white movies, naps, peppermint tea, road trips, and the color pink. I detest spiders, waking up early, and mushrooms. Favorite book(s) of the moment: The Mortal Instruments series. Favorite film(s) of the moment: Amelie. Favorite show(s) of the moment: Doctor Who.
One of my favoritest ever poets is e. e. cummings and one of my favoritest ever singers is Björk. So you can imagine how happy I was when I discovered a few years back that one of her songs, "Sun In My Mouth," is actually the following poem set to music:
I always thought the lyrics were especially beautiful, and now I know why -- it's this poem. I think it's gorgeous, and when combined with Björk's otherworldly, luminous voice, well it's nothing short of magical. :-)
