Disclaimer

This blog ran for more than two years with no graphics--and it received about 50 page views. I was advised to add graphics; after seeing the huge public that followed blogs dedicated to homoerotic images, I decided to use that kind. The result was a dramatically increased number of monthly page views, and the number has remained fairly steady. Most of the images were found on the internet; although they are assumed to be in the public domain, they are identified as far as possible. They are exhibited under the Fair Use protections of United States copyright law: their function is simply to attract readers to the poems--I receive no economic benefit from them or from the blog. Nevertheless, they will be removed if they are copyrighted and the owner so desires.

3 From THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF EMILY DICKINSON




Before—a Plank between two Cliffs—
Slant over the Abyss—
Behind me—Clouds—that mourn and lower
Throughout Eternities—

Horizons of wide Silence—List—
As—less than Decimal—
I feel the Universe lean down—
        To watch when I shall fall—
