    I ve seen many movies carrying beautiful poems ....so i m dedicating this thread to the poetry from movies.

    I saw "In her shoes" today...and i heard a piece of poetry that really made me cry... i know i know ... it sounds stupid ... but couldnt help it

    I dedicate it to you sharad...

    Its titled "I carry your heart with me" by E.E.Cummings

    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

    This one again is from the same movie as above....

    Its called "The Art" from Elizabeth Bishop

    The art of losing isn't hard to master;
    so many things seem filled with the intent
    to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

    Lose something every day. Accept the fluster of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
    The art of losing isn't hard to master.

    Then practice losing farther, losing faster: places, and names, and where it was you meant
    to travel.
    None of these will bring disaster.

    I lost my mother's watch. And look! my last, or next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
    The art of losing isn't hard to master.

    I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster, some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
    I miss them, but it wasn't a disaster.

    Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture I love) I shan't have lied.
    It's evident the art of losing's not too hard to master
    though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

    Ok this ones from the movie "Four weddings and a Funeral"

    Funeral Blues by W.H. Auden

    Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
    Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
    Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
    Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

    Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
    Scribbling on the sky the message He is Dead.
    Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
    Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

    He was my North, my South, my East and West,
    My working week and my Sunday rest,
    My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
    I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

    The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
    Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
    Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods;
    For nothing now can ever come to any good.

    This is from the movie "Truly Madly Deeply"

    Dead Woman by Pablo Neruda

    If suddenly you do not exist,
    if suddenly you no longer live,
    I shall live on.

    I do not dare,
    I do not dare to write it,
    if you die.
    I shall live on.

    For where a man has no voice,
    there, my voice.

    Where blacks are beaten,
    I cannot be dead.

    When my brothers go to prison
    I shall go with them.

    When victory,
    not my victory,
    but the great victory comes,
    even though I am mute I must speak;
    I shall see it come even
    though I am blind.

    No, forgive me.
    If you no longer live,
    if you, beloved, my love,
    if you have died,
    all the leaves will fall in my breast,
    it will rain on my soul night and day,
    the snow will burn my heart,
    I shall walk with frost and fire and death and snow,
    my feet will want to walk to where you are sleeping, but
    I shall stay alive,
    because above all things
    you wanted me indomitable,
    and, my love, because you know that I am not only a man
    but all mankind.

    Movie - Girl Interrupted

    Resume by Dorothy Parker

    Razors pain you,
    Rivers are damp,
    Acids stain you,
    And drugs cause cramp.

    Guns aren't lawful,
    Nooses give,
    Gas smells awful--
    You might as well live.
