Book: Emily Dickinson, Selected Poems

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!


Selected Poems, Emily Dickinson (1830–1886), includes more than sixty verses, plus an index of first lines and colophon.
