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.
I hope you love birds, too. It is economical. It saves going to Heaven.

The Soul unto itself
Is an imperial friend --
Or the most agonizing Spy --
An Enemy --could send --.

I felt it shelter to speak to you.
Tis sweet to know that stocks will stand
When we with Daisies lie --
That Commerce will continue --
And Trades as briskly fly.
