Poetry Wednesday--Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson is one of my favorite poets. I read this poem on Poets United and wanted to share.

This seems to speak of the transience of the poetic and the attempt on the part of the poet to harness that.

To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie—
True Poems flee—-

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
