i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart) Analysis I Carry Your Heart With Me, by E.E. Cummings is mainly focused on the concept of life and how it is everything to people. This poem also shows how a persons life grows with every day. Beyond the topic of life, this poem is also romantic. Cummings writes about a love that is so strong that it keeps stars apart. It also shows how two people can unite through love. Metaphors "'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 the mind hide and here is the wonder that keeps the stars apart." In E.E. Cummings poem there are many metaphors, many of which are not too easy to locate. In the line,"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 the mind hide and here is the wonder that keeps the stars apart" Cummings is relating life to a tree. The trip grows upward (for good things) but also has complications. (the roots and buds) It is also saying how you cannot always grasp everything in life and cannot always hide how you feel. Having these metaphors help to further show Cummings idea of life and how love can affect it. Another Metapor is: "I carry your heart with me." This can mean that he has lost someone whom he loved dearly Diction In E.E. Cummings poem diction plays an important role in establishing the tone/mood. In the lines, “anywhere I go you go my dear” and “and whatever is done by only me is your doing, darling,” the words “my dear” and “darling” show that the speaker is talking about something or someone that is very important to him. Someone that he loved dearly. It could be a person or his life perhaps. Personification Personification is also seen in this poem. Cummings uses personification in the lines “no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet) and “and whatever a sun will always sing is you.” In the first line mentioned he is saying that fate is a person. In the second line mentioned he is saying that the sun can sing. Repetition "I carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)"-repeated first line and last line of the poem.
