Based off the line, I’d rather learn from one bird how to sing than to teach ten thousand stars how not to dance. - e.e. cummings

I think the poem this is from has no title... for the life of me I couldn't find one.

Well done on the shading of the bird. A very pretty illustration!

Did you zip the file?

You can post images in your signature once you've bought something from a woot site. Then it's pretty easy.

Very nice work, I'll say again. +1

Ohh that explains it! and yes zipping it seems to have worked, it's odd because it usually tells me when I'm over my file limit. Anyways thanks for the info! Glad to see some people are likin' this

Love you design, it's just beautiful.
By the way, Cummings NEVER gave titles to his work; so they're all cataloged by the first line of each poem.

Yup That would explain it lol, I have seen some poems with names of his, guess I never realized it was just the first line used a title =P also explains why it was so hard to find the full poem and not just the individual quote

I adore e. e. cummings and this is an absolutely beautiful way of capturing not just the imagery of the poem but also the feel of it. I love this.
