My favorite Dickinson poem

Standard

This is my letter to the world,
That never wrote to me,
The simple news that Nature told,
With tender majesty.

Her message is committed
To hands I cannot see;
For love of her, sweet countrymen,
Judge tenderly of me!

-Emily Dickinson

About Keats

Oh I'm sassy and I'm sexy, So silly sweet-and-sour Delightfully disastrous And deliciously dour I'm flippantly foolish, Filled I am with fear Can't concentrate completely, and my conduct isn't clear But to bravely be my best I Bring bravado back, BEHOLD!

    • I adore Emily. 100% my favorite poet of all time. Such a simple, sweet, straightforward poetic style… She had a strong hand with rhyme, and a quirky touch with meter that catches my ear and plays with it… I also love her subject matter. Prolly the biggest influence in my own writing.
