The last stanza of Emily Dickinson I regard as the most Beautiful: And a Suspicion, like a Finger Touches my Forehead now and then That I am looking oppositely For the site of the Kingdom of Heaven—..................Mesmerizing poem. We have to understand ED, she is not an average poetess. CONGRATULATIONS being chosen as The Classic Poem Of The Day. Hurray!
