Famous Last Words of Emily Dickinson •
Because I Could Not Stop For Death by Emily Dickinson. Heard this as part of the sermon today. This sums it up for me rather well.
Especially in the case of poetry, quantity is almost never accompanied by quality. Often, the more concise, the sharper the punch packed within the poem.
"Because I could not stop for Death – He kindly stopped for me – The Carriage held but just Ourselves – And Immortality." ~Emily Dickinson

My cocoon tightens, colors tease. I'm feeling for the air; A dim capacity for wings demeans the dress I wear. - Emily Dickinson, Poem 1099 | Artist, Laurie Kaplowitz
