“lady, i will touch you with my mind” ⁂ e.e. cummings: modern classics

 there is something delightful about knowing you’re beautiful to look at, but there is something even more delightful about knowing you’re a ravishing soul.

“She accepts your compliments on her face,
her hair,
and her body graciously—
   and she is, indeed, beautiful.

   But she is only moved when you notice the beauty of her spirit.”

~ Allaisia Hanan

there is nothing else to be said except to add that there is something exquisite about touching the one beauty without ever touching the other using only… words.

lady, i will touch you with my mind

by e.e. cummings

lady, i will touch you with my mind.
touch you and touch and touch
until you give
me suddenly a smile, shyly obscene

(lady i will
touch you with my mind.) Touch
you, that is all,

lightly and you utterly will become
with infinite care

the poem which i do not write.
