The heart asks pleasure first, And then, excuse from pain And then, those little anodynes That deaden suffering And then, to go to sleep And then, if it should be The will of its Inquisitor, The liberty to die.
I reason, earth is short,And anguish absolute,And many hurt But what of that I reason, we could die The best vitalityCannot excel decay But what of that I reason that in heavenSomehow, it will be even,Some new equation given But what of that To review Emily s poetry feels like a slight injustice It is not meant to be explained, but pondered within yourself As, I read her poems, moments of my life flashed by Not what was happening in those moments, but what I felt then I wonder how she does that [...]
I had no time to hate, becauseThe grave would hinder me,And life was not so ample ICould finish enmity.Nor had I time to love but sinceSome industry must be,The little toil of love, I thought,Was large enough for me I have repeated from time to time on this site that I was not a big fan of 19th century literature as far as America and western Europe were concerned That even someone who reads the classics like me found it out of my toleration Well, even I can have exceptions and the poetry of Emi [...]
I hide myself within my flower,That wearing on your breast,You, unsuspecting, wear me too And angels know the rest.I hide myself within my flower,That, fading from your vase,You, unsuspecting, feel for meAlmost a loneliness VII
Combines the worst of romanticism with the worst of modernism.
Emily Dickinson is one of my favorite poets Her poems can be spiritual than most, but she has very unique descriptions and how she sees the world Her poems are very quick to read and are easy on the eyes I can guarantee that will enjoy some of her poems I will definitely be reading her second and third series
Emily Dickinson s verse infects you like an unsuspecting bacterium My thoughts realigned instinctively into strings of unbalanced rhythm, for a while, after I was done reading this volume and it was amusing and disarming at the same time In a Library was the first of a long list of poems from this book, that I fell in an endearing love with The last couple of stanzas read He traverses familiar,As one should come to townAnd tell you all your dreams were true He lived where dreams were sown.His pr [...]
Emily Dickinson is my all time favorite poet I loved one of her nature poems that was including in an anthology I read often as a child I will never forget the effect the following poem had on me the first time I read it, which was in college Because I could not stop for Death,He kindly stopped for me The carriage held but just ourselvesAnd Immortality.We slowly drove, he knew no haste,And I had put awayMy labor, and my leisure too,For his civility.We passed the school where children played,Thei [...]
I must admit that reading this was my first real exposure to Emily Dickinson Yes, I knew she was a famous poet, but I had never spent any time reading her work, nor could I identify any poem as belonging to her But after having her mentioned repeatedly in another book I just read I decided to download a free e book version of her poems.Poetry is such a unique writing style to me I am not an expert on poetry, and poems either resonate with me, or they don t A poem could be a brilliant work of art [...]
I never really consider Poetry books as read For me it is always and ongoing process of discovery Take this book for example I ve had it for years but never really read through I have my favorites though that I read over and over THE heart asks pleasure first,And then, excuse from pain And then, those little anodynesThat deaden suffering And then, to go to sleep And then, if it should beThe will of its Inquisitor,The liberty to die.
Some personal highlights Pain has an element of blank It cannot recollectWhen it began, or if there wereA day when it was not.It has no future but itself,Its infinite realms containIts past, enlightened to perceiveNew periods of pain A precious, mouldering pleasure t isTo meet an antique book Because I could not stop for Death,He kindly stopped for me The carriage held but just ourselvesAnd Immortality.
One of my favorites was Some things that fly there be, Birds, hours, the bumble bee Of these no elegy.Some things that stay there be, Grief, hills, eternity Nor this behooveth me.There are, that resting, rise.Can I expound the skies How still the riddle lies
It is truly beautiful how many quotes you can extract from her poems I decided that she s my favourite poet of all times.
If I had to describe the poems I just read with one word I d say beautiful I ll admit that I don t really read poetry but after watching A Quiet Passion, I decided that it s high time I read some of Emily Dickinson s works, because I had this feeling that I d really love them.And let me just say that if you want to read some beautiful, gentle and melodic poems Emily Dickinson is definitely a great choice.
This is my letter to the world, That never wrote to me, The simple news that Nature told, With tender majesty Her message is committed To hands I cannot see For love of her, sweet countrymen, Judge tenderly of me
I do not know why or from where I got this series but it is a good delight Series One was easy, romantic and unique.This is a good surprise and now I am eager to read Series Two and Three.
It s hard to read these poems and ignore her influence in many poets At the same time, it s also hard to read them and ignore how contemporary her poems still are.
I can t believe I ve never read Dickinson s work I plan to read volumes 2 and 3 next.
Even though I didn t like every single one of the poems I found a few which I adored and the rhythm, the themes and words really touched me Definitely want to read of her poetry.
This is the shortest and closest I could find since I read this in English 1C Introduction to literature and we read I dwell in possibility COUNTLESS TIMES
Emily Dickinson has always been my favorite poet and always will be I have a folder full of my favorite poems that I have collected over the years and they are nearly all hers Her poems are full of wit, sass, intellect, insight and She was incredibly talented.
I love Emily s work, especially that pertaining to nature and birds Here are my faves If I can stop one heart from breaking,I shall not live in vain or cool one pain,or help one fainting robin,unto his nest again,I shall not live i vain Assent, and you are sane Demur, you re straightway dangerous,and handled with a chain Some keep the Sabbath going to church I keep it staying at home,with a bobolink for a chorister,and an orchard for a dome.Some keep the Sabbath in surplice,I just wear my wings, [...]
I ve never been a poetry person because I used to think that I don t get it Lately, I noticed that reading it aloud or listening to other people reading poetry makes it accessible for me, so I tried that.In my quest to find poetry that I d enjoy, I came across this copy of Emily Dickinson and thought I could try it.I actually enjoyed it than I thought I would To be honest, I found the pacing of quite a few poems off and rather odd, but I also thoroughly enjoyed and highlighted a lot of them.Es [...]
The Grass so little has to do by Emily DickinsonThe Grass so little has to do A Sphere of simple Green With only Butterflies to broodAnd Bees to entertain And stir all day to pretty TunesThe Breezes fetch along And hold the Sunshine in its lapAnd bow to everything And thread the Dews, all night, like Pearls And make itself so fineA Duchess were too commonFor such a noticing And even when it dies to passIn Odors so divine Like Lowly spices, lain to sleep Or Spikenards, perishing And then, in Sove [...]
This book is a collection of Emily Dickinson poems It is divided up into the sections of Life, Nature, Love, Time and Eternity, The Single Hound, Further Poems and Additional poems I really enjoyed reading these poems, even though I couldn t understand some of them I had to keep my phone next to me while reading it so I could look up the words I didn t know and there were a lot But the ones I could understand I enjoyed and once I deciphered the ones I couldn t understand, I enjoyed those as well [...]
This may be the first poetry book I have read that was not required for school, which I have been out of for quite a while Obviously, it was different from what I am used to reading, but I enjoyed it There was such a wide variety of poems, so I came across some I liked, and some I didn t I was intimidated by the book before I started reading it I was worried I was not going to be able to follow the poems, or even understand them I ll admit, there were some I did not get, but some that I did and [...]
Wow, that was a good pleasure These lovely poems should be read on sunset, on a romantic beach, along with a tasty cup of good coffee with slow music for sure that would be perfect Emily Dickinson was a romantic soul Her poems say that They were easy, and totally charming.I highly recommend them If you like to take a break from your heavy noisy grey life, then you should read them they are the cure They will put you in a world full of colors.
I ll have to find a text copy of this The reader of the version I listened to seemed like he was having issues with pronouncing some words and transitioning from one poem to the next Like he was reading it all in one sitting Otherwise, I really enjoyed this collection of Emily Dickinson poems I found it on YouTube and it s also available on librivox to download for free
The depth that you find in Emily s writing is what you can t find in any prose The work that she could do in such young age, is astonishing Most of her work remains relevant even today, and shall remember the same for the coming generations Her poetry is filling, it fills your soul In this one, I love how her poems touch the point of grief, sadness and death of a loved one.
I enjoyed this A wandered in and out, sometimes reading whole sections, sometimes lingering over a favorite Though there s lots here I didn t find I had a vast many favorites, a few each section maybe, and the most in the last section Time and Eternity I do look forward to reading the other books in the series
