Poetry Corner

After reading a great article about Emily Dickinson, I felt inspired to highlight a few of her poems for the blog today!

Do you have a favorite poem by Emily? She was such a fascinating, mysterious, complex, brilliant woman. I wish I could have sat down for a cup of tea with her. 

An Hour is a Sea

An Hour is a Sea
Between a few, and me—
With them would Harbor be— 

At Least - To Pray - Is Left - Is Left

At least—to pray—is left—is left—
Oh Jesus—in the Air—
I know not which thy chamber is—
I'm knocking—everywhere—

Thou settest Earthquake in the South—
And Maelstrom, in the Sea—
Say, Jesus Christ of Nazareth—
Hast thou no Arm for Me?
