D – Double Treat
Back with us today is Colin Ward with his Haiku, Dreams
I lie, still awake,
wondering at a life spent
stood still in my dreams.
I promised a double treat so here’s the next D
D – Dickinson as in Emily Dickinson
Here are some quotes from or about this talented poet.
Emily Dickinson (1830-86) was an American poet and one of my favourites.
‘Dickinson’s poetry is set in that immediate moment of existence, with little nostalgia for a more overtly poetic medieval past.’ (Helen McNeil – Emily Dickinson, 1986)
‘Friday I tasted life. It was a vast morsel. A circus passed the house – still I feel the red in my mind though the drums are out.’ Emily Dickinson in Letters, (Everyman’s Library Pocket Poets, 2011)
‘Hope is the thing with feathers’ Emily Dickinson – read it here
