Notes from Emily

Two Poems from Emily Dickinson

  If I can stop one heart from breaking,

I shall not live in vain;

If I can ease one life the aching,

Or cool one pain,

Or help one fainting robin

Unto his nest again,

I shall not live in vain.

*****

The sky is low, the clouds are mean,

A travelling flake of snow

Across a barn or through a rut

Debates if it will go.

    

A narrow wind complains all day

How some one treated him;

Nature, like us, is sometimes caught

Without her diadem.

       

Poetry by Emily Dickinson 1830-1886
