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)

—e.e. cummings

You are certain to ♥ this journal! This would be a wonderful gift that any journal keeper, poet, bookworm, or aspiring writer would cherish. The above poem by E.E. Cummings is topped with a little red heart drawing. ***This journal can also come without the quote page. Please let me know in 'Notes to Seller' at check-out if you would prefer this.***

This journal is made with a gorgeous distressed dark brown and complemented with a red leather heart tag, and red stitching on the spine. (Over time, the oil in the leather may or may not subtly 'antique' the first and last pages of the journal.) The cover is kept closed with a coordinating leather tie that wraps around the journal and tucks underneath itself in the front. The leather heart tag is easily removed if you wish it without.

The journal is approximately 5.5" x 4.25" and 1.5" thick. It boasts 320-pages (both sides) of good quality white unlined 28 lb./105 gsm writing paper with handtorn edges - it's acid free and archival. The book opens flat so you can write or draw all the way into the margins. The binding is stitched with strong bees-waxed Irish linen bookbinding thread, visible on the spine.

Each book comes with a little "card of interest" containing information about your book (the history of the binding, the type of stitch) - which makes a lovely addition as a gift.
