My favorite poet “Emily Dickinson”

Ever since I heard about Emily Dickinson,  I became fascinated by her work. The few poems that I had to the chance to read had to do with religion and or death.  I feel that she was ready for the after life, whatever that may have been to her.  She was born in 1830 and is the author of such books as Wild Nights: Selected Poetry and Final Harvest.

The reason why I like her work is because  she seemed to be spiritually aware and ahead of her time .

If you have never heard of  her work check her out.  She is one of my favorites.

This is a poem of hers below:

“Hope” is the thing with feathers – By: Emily Dickinson

That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.
