EMILY DICKINSON ~ HOPE

in Poetry of Art by
george-frederick-watts-hope-79536

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune–without the words,
… And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I’ve heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

EMILY DICKINSON ~ THE SPLITTING OF THE BRAIN

in Art & the Unconscious Mind/Poetry of Art by
emily

I felt a Cleaving in my Mind…
as if my Brain has split..
I tried to match it – Seam by Seam –
But could not make it fit.

EMILY DICKINSON ~ ON POETRY

in Poetical Visions by

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotion know what it means to want to escape from these”
Emily Dickinson (American Poet, 1830-1886)
