St. Valentine's Day Poem and Tablescape

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)
~e.e.  cummings

This poem was what I was thinking of when I set this Valentine's table for two in the living room.
It is my favorite love poem, a sonnet almost.
 I think it should be a song, it's so beautiful, don't you?

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday
I'm linking up to Laura at Decor to Adore for her Valentine's Day Party
I'm joining Courtney at French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday
