Emily on the Shore


A Poem by Emily Dickinson

Note: In this poem the word “bark” is a type of sailing vessel, similar to a brigantine.


Whether my bark went down at sea,

Whether she met with gales,

Whether to isles enchanted

She bent her docile sails;


By what mystic mooring

She is held to-day,-

This is the errand of the eye

Out upon the bay.


Poetry by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

“When we love people, we give them hope.”
