On the final day of National Poetry Month, we celebrate the poems of Emily Dickinson, one of our favorite poets!
Tell All the Truth
But Tell It Slant
Tell all the truth but tell it slant —
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth’s superb surprise
As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind —
*** What are your favorite Emily Dickinson poems ?
