"i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)"e.e. cummings
The Story Behind This Tile
This poem is often described as one of the most talked about poems in modern times. Cummings focuses on the power and unity of love, and how it connects not only the two individuals in that relationship, but the world at large. This tile, with his bold stylistic heart encasing a similar heart, is a subtle and powerful expression of the speaker in this poem; he is completely in love with his significant other and feels such a unity with the heart of the significant other, that the experience is one of holding another heart inside the one we already have.

Care & Use
CARE: Enamel artwork is best polished with household glass cleaner and a soft cloth.
DISPLAYING: These delicate yet durable artworks are made to last, resist fading, shine under light, and fire up a meaningful conversation. Spiritiles can stand up on a flat surface or hang on a prized wall. They can stand alone, but love company. Each piece is sized the same to mix and match for a collection that tells your story.
HOW TO HANG: Drywall screws work great! When affixing the screw, leave a ¼" lip to rest the frame's hollow on the screw head. The art will sit securely and flush with the wall. When hanging multiple pieces, the ideal spacing between screws is 7¼" horizontal and 10½" vertical.
