Dickinson: A Tribute

Rate: 5 Flag

Mimicry is poor flattery --

These letters all slump, weak.

If You were I, and I were You --

I'd turn my other cheek.

 

Your Brain is Wider than the Sky --

Your Soul has locked its door --

Through the keyhole my peeking eye

Shut-out forevermore.

 

And all the hours you hid from me

You still were in plain sight;

For words can no more hide a soul

Than bulbs -- a light.

 

Humanity, divinity

Together and alone

A nature-god-man Trinity

Of crickets, birds, and bones.

A power of butterfly must be
The aptitude to fly,
Meadows of majesty concedes
And easy sweeps of sky.

Well Done!
Very Dickensian. Brava.
Oh, how I love Emily Dickinson. You did her proud!
Good for you, girl! Damn good.
Clever tribute, well done, rated.
Thanks guys! You're the best :)
It felt like Eden
to rest on these words
as lovely as her
fabled exotic birds
Ab Fab, love it, ~Rated~
Brava! Well done! Brava!!
