Emily Dickinson

(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

This Is My Letter To The World,

Poem by Emily Dickinson

This is my letter to the world,
That never wrote to me,-
The simple news that Nature told,
With tender majesty

Her message is committed
To hands I cannot see;
For love of her, sweet countrymen,
Judge tenderly of me!
