"Nature" Is What We See

Poem by Emily Dickinson

668

"Nature" is what we see—
The Hill—the Afternoon—
Squirrel—Eclipse— the Bumble bee—
Nay—Nature is Heaven—
Nature is what we hear—
The Bobolink—the Sea—
Thunder—the Cricket—
Nay—Nature is Harmony—
Nature is what we know—
Yet have no art to say—
So impotent Our Wisdom is
To her Simplicity.

    Why use so many dashes in punctuation? It is bad English. Emily Dickinson has nothing worthwhile to say to me, I'm afraid.(Report)Reply

    Michael WalkerMichael Walker(7/30/2019 10:35:00 PM)

    I doubt it. So many of her poems are like jottings with all the dashes. But thanks for your response.

    Perhaps if you try to get to know her better you may begin to understand better what it is she is trying to say to you......
