I Carry Your Heart by Carla Martell

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Inspired by EE Cumming’s poem ‘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 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)

I’m finding the way back home to my old loves of illustration, printmaking, drawing and design, after ages spent working in the crazy haphazard world of dance and theatre. I also design under the name of Scruff, which comes from my longstanding reputation as someone who can’t keep her artwork clean and tidy (luckily, computers came along and saved me from a life of smudgy blobs and fingerprints).
