In the last few months of blogging and quote hunting I have discovered a love for Emily Dickinson and her quotes and poems. Therefore this post is simply a selection of my favourite poems by Emily Dickinson. I hope you like them too.
Heart, we will forget him
Heart, we will forget him,
You and I, tonight!
You must forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.
When you have done pray tell me,
Then I, my thoughts, will dim.
Haste! ‘lest while you’re lagging
I may remember him!
What If I Say
What if I say I shall not wait?
What if I burst the fleshly gate
And pass, escaped, to thee?
What if I file this mortal off,
See where it hurt me, – that’s enough, –
And wade in liberty?
They cannot take me any more, –
Dungeons may call, and guns implore;
Unmeaning, now, to me
As laughter was an hour ago,
Or laces, or a traveling show,
Or who died yesterday!
It’s all I have to bring to-day
It’s all I have to bring to-day,
This, and my heart beside,
This, and my heart, and all the fields,
And all the meadows wide.
Be sure you count, should I forget, –
Someone the sum could tell, –
This, and my heart, and all the bees
Which in the clover dwell.
That I did always love
That I did always love,
I bring thee proof:
That till I loved
I did not love enough.
That I shall love always,
That love is life,
And life hath immortality.
This, dost thou doubt, sweet?
Then have I
Nothing to show
