Examples of the timeless work of Dickinson

I'm Nobody

I'm nobody. Who are you?

Are you nobody, too?

Then there's a pair of us - don't tell!

They'd banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!

How public, like a frog

To tell your name the livelong day

To an admiring bog!

Wild Nights

Wild Nights! Wild Nights!

Were I with thee,

Wild Nights should be

Our luxury!

Futile the winds

To a heart in port, -

Done with the compass,

Done with the chart!

Rowing in Eden!

Ah! the sea!

Might I but moor

Tonight In thee!

If I Can Stop One Heart From Breaking

If I can stop one heart from breaking,

I shall not live in vain;

If I can ease one life the aching,

Or cool one pain,

Or help one fainting robin

Unto his nest again,

I shall not love in vain.

Look Back on Time With Kindly Eyes

Look back on time with kindly eyes,

He doubtless did his best;

How softly sinks his trembling sun

In human nature's west!

A Word is Dead

A word is dead

When it is said,

Some say.

I say it just

Begins to live

That day.
