My roommate, dear friend, and bridesmaid, Em, has a to-die-for voice, and I asked her to sing a musical rendition of the poem during our wedding ceremony (to stream THE best version sung by Kate McGarry, click here).
My mom made some sample, possible, invitations to use for the wedding, and even though we decided against using it (too busy!), this mock invitation was inspired by e.e. cummings's poem (note the roots. and the buds. and the tree called life):
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 the 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)
