All The Letters I Can Write - Poem by Emily Dickinson

334

All the letters I can write
Are not fair as this—
Syllables of Velvet—
Sentences of Plush,
Depths of Ruby, undrained,
Hid, Lip, for Thee—
Play it were a Humming Bird—
And just sipped—me—

    All the letters i can write are laden with mediocrities and mean level. You do write simple and consequently you got accented.
    Inspirational poem.
