life and love and what?

The blog title may be a bit cryptic, I understand. (I'm also paranoid that people will think the "wings" part refers to, say, Buffalo Wings. No. While I am rather fond of them on occasion, they do not go in my blog title.) It comes from a line of one of my favorite poems. I'm not a huge e.e. cummings fan, but I do love this one.

i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth
day of life and love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

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)
