Since Feeling is First 

By. e.e cummings

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;

wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world
my blood approves
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don't cry
- the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids' flutter which says
we are for each other; then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life's not a paragraph
and death i think is no parenthesis

Winged Victory of Samothrace

I went to Paris for the first time when I was thirteen. I can remember walking into the Louvre and seeing Winged Victory for the first time. I thought it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. I have been back a few times since then, and each visit is like seeing an old friend. I love the simultaneous beauty and strength found in Winged Victory.
