Wild Nights! Wild Nights! Poem by Emily Dickinson

Wild Nights! Wild Nights!

Rating: 4.6

Wild Nights! Wild Nights!
Were I with thee,
Wild Nights should be
Our luxury!

Futile the winds
To a heart in port, --
Done with the compass,
Done with the chart!

Rowing in Eden!
Ah! the sea!
Might I but moor
To-night in Thee!

God didn't allow women much leeway in Eden. Think I'd have left that line out. Otherwise a very good poem

Emily's style of writing is just so unique. At once in few dramatic words she describes the heart in turmoil or the heart experiencing the ecstasy when it seems to be united with supreme being. A delightful poem to read.
