I Carry Your Heart With Me







 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
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)

Happy Valentine's day! Love is love, whether romantic, familial or friendship in form: we all have people in our lives whose hearts we hold dear. To me Valentine's day is a celebration of all these forms of love, each deeply important and necessary to me.
And most of all it is an appreciation of the man I love, he.

  8. What a beautiful dedication to end with as well as a lovely reminder of all the forms of love that we are party to.
    That first image makes me think of my mum because when we were younger my little brother and I always used to look out for heart shaped stones on beaches or by rivers to give to her. She has a small collection of them now, her 'Mum' stones...

    1. Thanks so much dear Roz! How lovely that your mum has a collection of 'hearts' from you and your bro, she must treasure them. It was a beautiful rock, but sadly too heavy for me to carry home at the time. Mr Eve and I have been collecting gorgeous marbled stones from the nearby beaches and have a little collection too, all looking like earth coloured Rothko miniatures.

  10. You always delight and surprise with your photography, outfits and the written word. It is obvious that you fill your world with beauty and to have found a rock the shape of a heart is truly magical.

    1. What a kind thing to say, Judith, I am really touched, thank you! Beauty is very important to me - not so much artful beauty but a recognition of the great beauty inherent in the natural world, and in natural woman too...
