Emily Dickinson

Dec. 10, 1830 - May 15, 1886


This is my letter to the world...

by Emily Dickinson

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!
