    My Favorite.

    I'm nobody! Who are you? Are you nobody, too? Then there's a pair of us - don't tell! They'd banish us, you know! How dreary to be somebody! How public like a frog To tell one's name the livelong day To an admiring bog!   I first read this as a teen, and...

    He ate and drank the precious words His spirit

    grew robust He knew no more that he was poor, Nor that his frame was dust He danced along the dingy days And this bequest of wings Was but a book. What liberty A loosened spirit brings! I typed this from memory I think it is right but I am not sure. This is my favorite poem...

    There's So Much To Dickinson!

    Like a lot of other people, I was forced to read Emily Dickinson's poetry early on in school before I was old enough to get into it and see that it wasn't as simple as it looks. I never liked her work until I was in graduate school, when I took a class taught by a Dickinson...

    Best Reason For Love Ever..!!

    "Why do I love" You, Sir? Because— The Wind does not require the Grass To answer—Wherefore when He pass She cannot keep Her place. Because He knows—and Do not You— And We know not— Enough for Us The Wisdom it be so— The Lightning—never asked an Eye Wherefore it...

    Yeah, she was one crazy *****! Lol But she was the one who basically started self-reflective poetry. Think about it. She knew what she was talking about, but she was in love with Thoreau....hmmm...strange lives.
