Quotes from e.e. cummings' Poem 95

if up's the word; and a world grows greener
minute by second and most by more—

if beggars are rich (and a robin will sing his
robin a song) but misers are poor—
let's love until noone could quite be (and young is
the year, dear) as living as i'm and you're
—let's touch the sky:

e. e. cummings (1894-1962),

95 Poems

Happy 95th Birthday dear Harold—
May your 95th year be beautiful,
fruitful and wonderful!

With joyous wishes,
