The Poetry of Emily Dickinson

  • Ronniehas quoted3 years ago
    So unsuspected violets
    Within the fields lie low,
    Too late for striving fingers
    That passed, an hour ago.
  • Jo Leehas quoted3 years ago
    If I can stop one heart from breaking,
    I shall not live in vain;
    If I can ease one life the aching,
    Or cool one pain,
    Or help one fainting robin
    Unto his nest again,
    I shall not live in vain.
  • Jdlyn Crtzhas quoted4 years ago
    DAWN.

    When night is almost done,
    And sunrise grows so near
    That we can touch the spaces,
    It 's time to smooth the hair

    And get the dimples ready,
    And wonder we could care
    For that old faded midnight
    That frightened but an hour.
  • Jaz Alvhas quoted4 years ago
    If I can stop one heart from breaking,
    I shall not live in vain;
    If I can ease one life the aching,
    Or cool one pain,
    Or help one fainting robin
    Unto his nest again,
    I shall not live in vain.
  • An-nisa Pratiwihas quoted6 years ago
    The soul selects her own society,
    Then shuts the door;
  • Elena Lugohas quoted5 months ago
    The moon slides down the stair
    To see who's there.

    POWER.

    You cannot put a fire out;
    A thing that can ignite
    Can go, itself, without a fan
    Upon the slowest night.

    You cannot fold a flood
    And put it in a drawer, —
    Because the winds would find it out,
    And tell your cedar floor.
  • isjalsoleilhas quoted5 months ago
    LOVE.

    Love is anterior to life,
    Posterior to death,
    Initial of creation, and
    The exponent of breath.
  • isjalsoleilhas quoted5 months ago
    THE PAST.

    The past is such a curious creature,
    To look her in the face
    A transport may reward us,
    Or a disgrace.

    Unarmed if any meet her,
    I charge him, fly!
    Her rusty ammunition
    Might yet reply!
  • isjalsoleilhas quoted5 months ago
    XLVI.

    To help our bleaker parts
    Salubrious hours are given,
    Which if they do not fit for earth
    Drill silently for heaven.
