My Poetry
By Emily Dickenson

    No poetry collection would be complete without including some poems by one of the great poets - Emily Dickenson.  Here are four of my favorite  poems by her.

A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.
I say it just
Begins to live
That day.
-Emily Dickenson


I took my power in my hand
And went against the world;
'Twas not so much as David had,
But I was twice as bold.

I aimed my pebble, but myself
Was all the one that fell.
Was it Goliath was too large,
Or only I too small?
-Emily Dickenson


Much madness is divinest sense
To a discerning eye
'Tis the majority,
In this, as all, prevails.
Assent, and you are sane;
Demure - You're straight away dangerous
And handled with a chain.
-Emily Dickenson


I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody too?
Then there's a pair of us - don't tell!
They'd banish us you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog.
-Emily Dickenson
