    • POEM: I Carry Your Heart With Me by Edward Estlin Cummings (9/5/2006 3:05:00 PM)

      Having just read through others' comments and having been touched by the comments of fellow hopeless romantics, let me offer another of my favorite poems, 'The Highwayman, ' by Alfred Noyes. I first heard the poem as a song in an album by Loreena McKinnett, a Canadian singer and writer who combines mesmerizing words and melodies. The Noyes' poem contains 2 or 3 stanzas (including one significant detail) that Loreena dropped from the song, but both are riveting evocations of a doomed romance in 18th Century England. Enjoy.

    • POEM: I Carry Your Heart With Me by Edward Estlin Cummings (9/5/2006 2:49:00 PM)

      I, too, first heard the poem while watching 'In Her Shoes' this past weekend with my wife. The emotions expressed moved me deeply and made me want to read the poem at the wedding if/when either of my sons should marry (which better not happen til they can support themselves! ! !) .
