The Sea

And made as he would eat me up
As wholly as a dew
Upon a dandelion's sleeve -
And then I started too.

And he - he followed close behind;
I felt his silver heel
Upon my ankle, - then my shoes
Would overflow with pearl.

Until we met the solid town, 
No man he seemed to know, 
And bowing with a mighty look
At me, the sea withdrew.

          Emily Dickinson

In bocca al lupo.  m & v


  1. Oh, beautiful! One of my favorites from ED. And it your photo/quote looked especially lovely on my KF.

    1. I may be featuring more ED, and others, as the year progresses. I'm glad it's one of your favorites. My favorite English/Drama instructor keeps me supplied with books of poetry. Thank you! m:)
