A Poem About How Much I Like Emily Dickinson's
Image via WikipediaI wanted to write a poem as light as
her one from yesterday (IX).
It's good for the heart not to have to look
at troubles every day.
I want to have the same effect as she:
to not affect the spirit,
But leave it at the end of the day
as if you'd never read it.
It's pleasing the way she uses nature
to describe human feelings;
she creates a pretty picture that
I would love to go in.
Her poem is so sweet I hope it was read.
I'm writing against the clock.
On me it had the effect she'd want:
there are riches inside to unlock.
