“let it go”

This is a re-post from Panhala Poetry. It spoke to me so strongly I’ve reread it five or six times. Enjoy this e. e. cummings poem.

let it golet it go – the
smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise – let it go it
was sworn to

let them go – the
truthful liars and
the false fair friends
and the boths and
neithers – you must let them go they
were born
to go

let all go – the
big small middling
tall bigger really
the biggest and all
things – let all go
so comes love

~ e. e. cummings ~
(Complete Poems 1904-1962)

    I suspect that the songwriter of “Let it Go” from Frozen read that poem–it’s certainly the same sentiment. Love this–thanks for posting!
