If Everything Happens That Can't Be Done
by E. E. Cummings (1894-1962)

if everything happens that can't be done
(and anything's righter than books could plan)
the stupidest teacher will almost guess
(with a run skip around we go yes)
there's nothing as something as one

one hasn't a why or because or although
(and buds know better than books don't grow)
one's anything old being everything new
(with a what which around we come who)
one's everyanything so

so world is a leaf so a tree is a bough
(and birds sing sweeter than books tell how)
so here is away and so your is a my
(with a down up around again fly)
forever was never till now

now i love you and you love me
(and books are shuter than books can be)
and deep in the high that does nothing but fall
(with a shout each around we go all)
there's somebody calling who's we

we're anything brighter than even the sun
(we're everything greater than books might mean)
we're everyanything more than believe
(with a spin leap alive we're alive)
we're wonderful one times one
