Emily Dickinson

Why I Like her?

I was outwitted with her phrase about herself:
My hair is bold like the chestnut burr; and my eyes, like the sherry in the glass that the guest leaves.

And above all, I love her poem about love... hahhhahhha
As if I am a sad woman! But somewhere in my heart believes that she was a happy woman.

Another one from her

Part Three: Love


I ’M wife; I ’ve finished that,
That other state;
I ’m Czar, I ’m woman now:
It ’s safer so.

How odd the girl’s life looks 5
Behind this soft eclipse!
I think that earth seems so
To those in heaven now.

This being comfort, then
That other kind was pain; 10
But why compare?
I ’m wife! stop there!

She is mystical, a witchy-like
A fearless poet
Genuine to her words
For me she is the poet of the unpoetic
She is deep
You think you can read her
But there’s more… (My name witchyboop was taken from her and Bettyboop. Natripan lang... pero mahal ko yang dalawang character na yan. Kwedaw ka..)

emily dickinson is also a favorite of mine. she's a mysterious soul di ba? i do love her poems, doesn't matter if most of them reflects loneliness and death.

if i remember my lit class in high school, i think emily was an introvert or seem to be always afraid of something.

Nobody knows this little rose
It might a pilgrim be
Did I not take it from the ways
And lift it up to thee.
Only a bee will miss it
Only a butterfly
Hastening from far journey
On its breast to lie
Only a bird will wonder
Only a breeze will sigh
Ah little rose, how easy
For such as thee to die

Dickinson, always the enigma.
