A Few Emily Dickinson Poems

emily Dickinson quote
This is My Letter to the World, is my favorite poem by Emily Dickinson. I just wanted to share it because she really isolated herself from society and yet, still had a wonderful insight on the world. She also had a few other good, but short poems, I listed below. Emily Dickinson is also good for some longer poems. She wrote a lot about death, wilderness, and love. She was a very talented poet, but no one knew of her works until after her death. Her poems were found by her sister, who then went on to publish them, with some help from others. I love writing poetry myself, but Emily Dickinson’s poetry is what got me into writing poetry. I will be sharing more works of my favorite poets and starting to share my own poetry on this blog as well with time. I am also welcoming any and all poets to submit their work to me, so that I can feature it! (With credits to the author of course.) So without further ado, here are two of my favorites from her, plus one short one you can tweet!

This is My Letter to the World by Emily Dickinson

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!

A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day. #poetry… Click To Tweet

I’m Nobody! By Emily Dickinson

I’m Nobody! Who are you?

Are you – Nobody – too?

Then there’s a pair of us!

Don’t tell! they’d advertise – you know!

How dreary – to be – Somebody!

How public – like a Frog –

To tell one’s name – the livelong June –

To an admiring Bog!
