"i thank You God for this most amazing"

Here is an excerpt from a poem by the American poet e.e. cummings:

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any - lifted from the no
of all nothing - human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

Mr. cummings is famous for the playful use of language and presentation he incorporated in many of his poems. Just how famous? typing this poet's name into Google images and searching you can find a number of e.e. tattoos - such as this one!
