Creative Quotations from . . .
Emily Dickinson
(1830-1886) born on
Dec 10
US poet. She was a reclusive stylist who combined spare lyricism with unorthodox diction.
To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie --
True Poems flee --

Prayer is the little implement
Through which men reach
Where presence - is denied them.
To multiply the harbors does not reduce the sea.
No Life can pompless pass away --
The lowliest career
To the same Pageant wends its way
As that exalted here --.
Let us go in; the fog is rising.
