That's beautiful. The words, the voice, the pictures, the music, the meaning. A great way to "pause," in our busy lives.

Isn't it? I really like it too.

Cute reading by a little tyke! :-)

Dickinson poems are always enjoyable. Good thing they were collected and published, rather than destroyed, as the author had instructed them to be!

Absolutely. I love Dickinson and I'm sure she will show up here again!

I love this poem, but the child reading and the video clips in the background build up to a very strange combination.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
